Whether you already work in this arena or aspire to, you will advance your environmental and landscape knowledge and gain the necessary skills and understanding to make informed and effective countryside management decisions.
Graduates have gone on to work at nationally-recognised organisations such as Natural England, Historic England, National Trust and The Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group.
There is flexibility built into the course. Part-time students in employment can complete the work-based Research Project and reduce the time required to attend campus-based modules. You will also have the opportunity to undertake research field trips, including Costa Rica for ecology and Greece or Italy to explore heritage.
You will benefit from the numerous links with colleagues who work in the countryside sector, both through field visits and visiting guest lecturers. Your Research Project will give you great opportunities to work directly with industry partners. Previous examples have considered how to manage habitats at the landscape scale for adders and how to protect vulnerable sites through use of appropriate signage.
