Do you want to get ahead in your career as an ecologist?

For the second year we are running a Summer School for aspiring ecologists in their 1st Undergraduate year (Scottish 2nd year ).

The school is designed to further develop existing knowledge with plenary lectures from senior ecologists, fieldwork, workshops, careers mentoring and more at a week long residential course.

Successful applicants are invited to attend the school free of charge and for this reason we expect competition to be high.

The Summer School will take place on 18-22nd July at Malham Tarn Field Centre in North Yorkshire
