Dissertations

Dissertations – the product of your own hard work

Whether completing your undergraduate dissertation, your postgraduate research thesis, or even your A level projects, this is your chance to spend time studying a particular subject that interests you and show your tutors and future employers what you are capable of. Chosen carefully, a relevant, topical and challenging dissertation will show an awareness of the challenges facing you in your intended career and demonstrate your commitment to a successful future.

With seven research camps currently operating in a range of unique and ecologically important environments, Frontier offers you the opportunity to work alongside experienced researchers on a variety of projects ensuring the perfect one can be found for you.

What to do on your dissertation

If you picture yourself as a field scientist at the forefront of biodiversity and conservation research, working with Frontier on a carefully designed project could be the perfect answer to your dissertation dilemma.

For those students with an interest in terrestrial ecosystems, ecology and biodiversity, Frontier runs a number of research projects based in various locations across the world.

If the marine environment is more to your suiting, you can combine scuba training with survey techniques on marine conservation and diving projects on remote marine camps with other volunteers and Frontier staff.

Where to go on your dissertation

One of the most important aspects of your dissertation is your interest and enjoyment in it. With over twenty years of experience in the field, Frontier specialises in placing you on the perfect project where you will gain the experience you need to complete your studies, add to your CV and further your career.

With Frontier’s work during the 1990s central to the establishment of the Mafia Island Marine Park on the east coast of Tanzania, you can contribute to research that monitors the ongoing effectiveness of the marine park. You can also study the terrestrial wildlife on the island such as fruit bats, crows and hippos.

The most recently established Frontier project, currently operating on the world famous Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica, aims to monitor trends in populations of turtles, river otters, primates and amphibians among others.

Bordered by two protected areas, the Frontier Madagascar terrestrial camp focuses on lemurs, amphibians, reptiles and vegetation cover as indicators of ecosystem health and change, while the marine camp focuses on the health of ecosystems in Diego Bay.

If the continent of Asia holds a particular charm for you, the key to your dissertation success could lie in the Tonle Sap Biosphere Reserve, the site of Frontier’s research in Cambodia where significant areas of interest continue to be the populations of fishing cats and leopard cats.

Operational since 2006, Frontier Fiji’s marine project is focussed on the long term monitoring of coastal zone ecosystem health and the establishment of sustainable resource management plans with local communities.

If any of these projects captures your imagination then check out our potential dissertation topics.
