Last modified: 25 Sep 2019 09:58


Course Overview

The five day residential field course comprises visits to a range of locations in the Borders and the English Lake District. Sites are chosen to reflect a range of management objectives including: environmental protection; habitat restoration; recreation; and, timber production. Sites often have more than one management objective and students will learn about managing conflicting goals through discussions with practitioners. Meeting land use professionals gives students an insight into the range of careers open to them when they graduate.
