The Bristol Palaeobiology Research group offers a wide range of educational opportunities, from undergraduate courses through to postgraduate research degrees. Find out more about our specific programmes, how to apply, and what funding might be available.


Palaeontology and Evolution is a diverse course that covers many aspects of the geological and earth sciences. Our degrees are interdisciplinary and numerate and provide you with a broad background in palaeobiological science, including state-of-the-art methods and technological advances.


I think the Bristol MSc in Palaeobiology is an outstanding programme that gives you strong theoretical and methodological bases for the study of palaeobiology. This MSc program has provided me with the necessary tools to be a successful researcher and science communicator.

We are keen to involve undergraduates in our research, and offer internship opportunities every year.

Bob Savage Memorial Fund

The Bob Savage Memorial Fund was initiated in 1992, based on a generous donation by the late Bob Savage. Our current graduate students can apply for funding to assist them with their studies, especially to cover the costs of fieldwork. Find out about Bob Savage himself, and about the former winners here.
