If you are interested in applying for any of these masters courses we strongly encourage you to contact our Institute administrator Eileen McGee (Eileen.McGee@glasgow.ac.uk) before or simultaneously with submitting a formal application, so that we can look out for, and if necessary help you with the submission of your application.


The Institute of Biodiversity, Animal Health & Comparative Medicine offers a wide range of short courses as part of the MSc programmes in Quantitative Methods in Biodiversity, Conservation & Epidemiology and Animal Welfare Science, Ethics & Law.  These courses were designed to enhance the training opportunities for all postgraduate students in IBAHCM and so PhD students and MRes students are welcome to take these courses for credit or sit-in on them to expand their skill set (space permitting). The emphasis is on practical hands-on skills development; a laptop with wireless access is required for most courses.   Postdoctoral research fellows and other members of staff would also be welcome. Please email the individual course instructors if you would like to attend the courses, to determine if there is space and if so, to register your participation.

Please see the handbook for a description of the courses available, a draft schedule and contact details of course instructors -
