APLORI student outcomes

As of January 2016 APLORI has trained 84 students to Masters level, and this year continues with another 9 students. Of the 78 students we have current outcomes for: 49% have gone on to do or are doing a PhD, and 30% of APLORI PhDsour students have obtained PhD places in Universities outside of Africa (including Oxford, Cambridge, Lund, Groningen); 27% have University positions in Africa, 23% work for conservation NGOs in Africa, 19% work in Government departments, 9% are school teachers and 8% are still carrying out post-graduate research at APLORI.

And perhaps most importantly – only one of our graduates has left Africa to work outside of conservation. So there are therefore over 80 (and counting!) new Conservation Biology graduates, who have been trained in ornithology and birding, out there doing positive things for birds in Africa as a result of APLORI.
