On this degree, you’ll study the management of woodlands and forests for commercial, recreation, and conservation. Your course will include modules on silviculture, woodland ecology, forest health, and forest management planning. Practical hands-on experience backs up theory and there will be opportunities to study in a wide range of forest environments, from ancient semi-natural woodland to plantations.
You’ll be well placed for a career as a professional forest manager both at home and overseas. The degree has a vocational focus and it is expected that as part of your course, you will acquire practical experience in forestry through employment, placements, work experience, and volunteer opportunities.
On this course you will...
- Develop skills and knowledge that is attractive to forestry employers.
- Be taught by tutors who have worked as professional foresters and bring their first-hand experience to their teaching.
- Be a part of small class sizes, meaning you’ll get personal tutor guidance and support throughout your studies.
