BSc (Hons) Woodland Ecology & Conservation

If you feel as passionately as we do about the conservation of our forests and woodland resources, then we want to help you develop that passion into a career. You’ll gain a broad understanding of the many issues surrounding the conservation of woodland areas, both in this country and abroad, and will develop skills relevant to broader conservation and natural resource management.

You will learn how to protect, improve and enhance biodiversity in woodlands, providing you with the knowledge to make a career of your passion for the environment. This general understanding will branch into choosing a specialist focus in your final year, creating an individual path to your future.

Delivered by the National School of Forestry, your studies on this course will be taught by a highly experience team of academics, complemented by visiting specialists who will teach you more about the many varied paths an interest in conservation can take.

This course is also available with a sandwich placement.
