Course description

We have been teaching forestry at Bangor for more than 110 years, and there has never been a more exciting time to enter the profession. Our degrees will prepare you for the challenge of managing forests for the many benefits they provide, at a time of global environmental change. Forests, vital to the global ecosystem, cover 30% of the world’s land area. Forestry is concerned with the understanding and sustainable management of these forests for the benefit of society. This Forestry (with placement year) course is accredited by the Institute of Chartered Foresters and gives partial fulfilment of Professional Membership Entry.


For details of the modular structure, please see the course description on Bangor University's website.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
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.
