Why study this course?

This course will provide you with the relevant skills to work in the industry. The course is ideal for students with a passion for natural history and the environment, enabling you to study topics such as habitat management, plant and animal identification and ecological survey techniques – vital skills where current legislation demands environmental impact assessments in a range of situations. Additional modules cover trees and woodlands, entrepreneurship, UK agriculture, plant biology and soil science. The College is within easy reach of internationally important habitats including Morecambe Bay, Gait Barrows National Nature Reserve, Leighton Moss RSPB Nature Reserve, limestone grasslands, reedbeds, peat bogs, moorland and sand dunes. Many of these habitats will be studied during regular site visits throughout the course, which is supplemented by a one-week field trip.
