Why study this Biological Sciences – Wildlife Behaviour and Conservation program at the University of Chester

Our teaching team consists of active researchers working on a diverse range of study species, both in the wild and in captivity. We work with a range of partner organisations, both within the UK and internationally, to ensure our students’ projects contribute directly to the conservation of the species or habitats involved.

Program Structure

  • A compulsory taught module in wildlife research methods provides advanced training in core specialisations; these may include project design and applying for grants, field techniques, statistical analysis and geographical information systems.
  • You will then select a taught specialist module in an area relevant to your research project or career path, for example conservation genetics or behaviour and welfare in wildlife conservation.

Academic Requirements

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).


  • Applicants should normally possess a honours degree in a relevant subject or demonstrate equivalent experience in a related field, e.g. wildlife conservation, behaviour or ex situ conservation.
  • Relevant research experience in the field or laboratory is expected.
  • An interview will be required.


  • Students from countries outside the UK are expected to have entry qualifications roughly equivalent to UK A Level for undergraduate study and British Bachelor’s degree (or equivalent) for postgraduate study.
  • We accept a wide range of qualifications and consider all applications individually on merit. We may also take into account appropriate work experience.


The University of Chester offers generous international and merit-based scholarships for both undergraduate and postgraduate study, providing a significant reduction to the published headline tuition fees. You will automatically be considered for these scholarships when submitting an application and any award given will be shown on your offer letter.
