New MSc in Statistical Ecology

St Andrews University now offers an MSc Degree and Postgraduate Diploma in
Statistical Ecology. These programmes (one year full-time or two years
part-time) are taught by staff at the world-leading Centre for Research
into Ecological and Environmental Modelling (CREEM)
<https://www.creem.st-andrews.ac.uk/>. They are designed to give students a
solid understanding of the statistical foundations of modern statistical
ecology methods and to equip them with the skills to use these methods
effectively, or to pursue a research career in statistical ecology. Those
working with marine mammals will find the training in distance sampling,
mark-recapture, movement modelling and spatial modelling particularly

CREEM <https://www.creem.st-andrews.ac.uk/> collaborates with researchers
across the globe and the MSc incorporates a summer research dissertation
that includes an optional placement, with collaborators either in the UK or
(at additional cost) abroad. Placements are designed to connect theoretical
training with real field studies and professionals, and to give hands-on
experience using these methods under the supervision of experts, including
some of the leading researchers in this field. We also have an innovative
and flexible dissertation format, that can include producing a podcast, web
page, poster, field report, training materials, or a short film.

Further information, including details of entry requirements and how to
apply can be found here:


Applicants may also apply for a fee waiver. If successful, their course fee
will be covered by the University.  Details will be posted at the above
website shortly.
