Interested in a career in forestry? Then we're here to get you started! We understand the importance of modern forestry to our everyday lives, from reducing climate change and protecting wildlife, to opening up recreational spaces. By taking our vocational course, you'll develop the specialist knowledge and techniques you need to enter a career in forestry, or improve on your existing skills.

Our one year work placement offers a fantastic chance to experience hands-on forestry work, putting the knowledge you develop during your studies into a real-world context. If you're new to forestry then this is the perfect chance to get a thorough introduction into the profession, with the chance to take vocational certificate courses recognised by the industry. Get on the right path to a rewarding position as a forester!

Many of our full-time programmes can be studied over a longer period on a part-time basis. Please contact the course enquiries team for further details.
