Our partners

Our research-led teaching takes advantage of our links with top London institutions such as the Natural History Museum and ZSL London Zoo.

Natural History Museum


With a long history of scientific research into its collections, the National History Museum has played a key role in training the next generation of scientists for many years, at both the Masters and PhD levels. 

The Museum’s expertise, research interests, collections and facilities contribute to training the next generation of scientists in collections-based research. The NHM is a formal partner in two UCL courses: MRes Biodiversity, Evolution and Conservation and MSc Biodiversity and Global Change.
