Please note that this course has started and enrolment is no longer possible.

There is no doubt that natural habitats and the species they contain are under severe threat from human disturbance; from tropical rainforests to the polar ice-caps, no area of the planet has escaped. In this course, we will explore key issues in modern conservation. Rather than bemoaning losses, we will focus on what can be done to protect what is left of the world's biodiversity.


Unless otherwise stated, teaching and assessment for ICE courses are in English. Students whose first language is not English should refer to the Competence in the English Language Policy for further guidance.

Printable versions of our brochures are available to download from the Institute Publications page.
