This five day residential field course follows one of two alternating programmes: one in northern Scotland and the other in the Borders and Lake District.
We visit forests in both the public and private sectors (including at least one with a conservation designation) and meet the local forest managers who give us the benefit of their knowledge and experience.Meetings with forest managers and other land use professionals gives you an insight into the sort of careers that are open to you when you graduate (in Forestry and also other degrees, e.g. Ecology, Conservation Biology...)
