Gain practical and leadership skills, as well as necessary knowledge and understanding to manage the countryside, wildlife and rural heritage sites. Our graduates have gone on to work for prestigious organisations such as The Wildlife Trust, The National Trust, RSPB, and The Forestry Commission.

You can take full advantage of the great contacts we have with industry through guest speakers, field visits and work-based placements. Students have visited sites such as the Royal Botanic Garden, Kew, South Wales Coast and Somerset Levels.

Our University farms, along with the John Oldacre Rural Innovation Centre at Harnhill Manor Farm and a neighbouring forestry estate, give you ideal platforms on which to gain various vocational skills required by industry, such as use of machinery (chainsaws, brushcutters, ATVs and tractors) and ecological survey work (vegetation and mammal surveys).

As well as our honours degree, we offer a range of foundation degree pathways allowing you to develop your interests in a particular subject area, with the opportunity to progress on to a bespoke Top-up degree afterwards, giving you flexibility. Our Masters programmes have been developed in partnership with practitioners from across cultural heritage. Our teaching team brings together experienced university lecturers and professionals from archaeological and heritage practice including major consultancies such as Wessex Archaeology. All share an ambition to build distinctive, innovative and creative courses that will make your learning experience memorable and enjoyable.

You will deepen your understanding of the living and physical environment and promote working in partnership with land managers to contribute to sustainable management for the future.
