Key dates

Pre-registration: From May 6 to September 13, 2020.

Admission: From June 29 to September 18, 2020.

The general objective of Master's Degree in Basic and Applied Research in Game Resources (MUIBARC) It is the training of graduates capable of carrying out scientific research tasks in the field of management and conservation of wild fauna and biodiversity, including species of hunting interest.

MUIBARC is presented as a specific offer of knowledge on wildlife species, including those of hunting interest, at a specialized level and complementary to the degree titles of various degrees. It is intended for professionals and students who intend to increase their training in various scientific disciplines associated with the conservation and management of biodiversity and with the promotion of sustainable and rational hunting management, based on the application of scientific criteria.

The MUIBARC is taught in an academic year divided into two semesters and is structured in 60 ECTS. Each subject is taught in one week in morning and afternoon sessions, in which laboratory practices and field activities represent more than half of the credits. East sequential system, in which almost all face-to-face activities are concentrated in 9 weeks, It has several advantages to satisfy the various situations of compatibility (full dedication or compatibility with labor or other obligations) that potential interested parties may present.

The keys of MUIBARC

  • The MUIBARC faculty not only integrates the IREC staff, which belongs to the University of Castilla-La Mancha (UCLM) or the Higher Council for Scientific Research (CSIC). Further, highlights the contribution made by researchers from other universities and research centers, both Spanish and foreign. In all cases they are some of the most prestigious scientists in their respective fields of work.
  • MUIBARC gives access to the Doctorate. The training acquired by the graduates (more than half are already doctors) has allowed them to enter the labor market in various national and foreign companies in the environmental, animal health, hunting and biotechnology sectors, and in more than a quarter of cases, in educational and research institutions.
  • MUIBARC's prestige in the field of wildlife research has grown steadily since its inception, having successfully passed two evaluations of the National Agency for Quality Assessment and Accreditation (ANECA), which indicates its solvency in the Spanish university scene.
  • The quality of MUIBARC has promoted its internationalizationSo that 15% of its students are foreigners and 21% of graduates carry out their activity outside of Spain.
  • The high quality of the Master's Thesis (TFM) resulting from MUIBARC motivates that lead to scientific publications in journals indexed in the Science Citation Index (SCI), which grants an important curricular advantage to its authors.
  • The teaching articulation of one week per subject and the possibility of partial enrollment allow the student to organize their follow-up adapting it to their particular situation, being able to complete it in one academic year or more.
  • If the sanitary conditions motivated by the COVID-19 pandemic prevented attendance, IREC has the means and experience to do it remotely while maintaining the high quality training that characterizes MUIBARC. In that case, the field and laboratory practices would be rescheduled to other dates.
  • For students who do not have a full degree at the time of enrollment there is a possibility that they will be conditionally admitted as long as they are graduated before the end of 2020.
  • Once admitted to MUIBARC, the student receives a communication at the email address indicated in the pre-registration application, with the information related to the registration appointment, in order to formalize it on the INTERNET within the period of prior appointment assigned.
