Subjects

Environmental management

Forestry and arboriculture

Forests are the most biodiverse of all terrestrial ecosystems and contain the vast majority of the world’s terrestrial species. This degree provides an understanding of this biodiversity, the ways in which it is influenced by people, and the role that forests can play in reducing the impacts of human activities, including climate change. The degree focuses on the principles of biological conservation, forest ecology and forest ecosystem function, the practice of conservation, and the ways in which forests can be managed to meet conservation objectives. There are opportunities to study abroad in the second year and to spend up to 12 months working for a conservation or forestry organisation. This course is accredited by the Institute of Chartered Foresters and gives partial fulfilment of Professional Membership Entry.

What do graduate employment figures really tell you?

Fewer than 100 graduates usually take full first degrees in forestry and arboriculture, so there is not a lot of data to examine — they're a little more commonly taken as foundation degrees, often studied at colleges. But for the chosen few in forestry, there are a handful of specialist roles in forestry management available every year, and this is the degree preferred for those jobs. If you want to find out more specifically about the prospects for your chosen subject, it might be a good idea to go on open days and talk to tutors about what previous graduates from your chosen subject went on to do.

What about your long term prospects?

Looking further ahead, below is a rough guide for what graduates went on to earn.
