What academic background is required to attend the BEWM master?

The required background for admission in the first year corresponds to a bachelor level in ecology, evolutionary biology or population biology as a general manner.

Direct entrance at the second year of the master level is possible for applicants with five years of previous studies.

In more details, applicants need to master the fundamental concepts from evolutionary biology, basic ecology concepts, have some notions of quantitative and population genetics, basic notions of animal behaviour (behavioural ecology), and a fair level of biostatistics (descriptive and analytical statistics).

Please note the specificity of a master’s programme in France : about 25 hours of teaching (lectures, tutorials and practicals) per week + 20 hours of personal work
