The Environmental Forestry course at Bangor University has been running for more than 25 years, and its graduates are now working in forestry all over the world.
We have close links with forestry and environmental organisations in the UK and overseas, and staff of these organisations make regular contributions to the course.
Lectures, seminars and independent learning are supported by an active programme of field practicals, forest visits and a week-long study tour, during which students discuss management and policy issues with forestry professionals.
Against a sometimes gloomy economic backdrop, natural resource management, and forest management in particular, is becoming more important, with the result that there is a generally acknowledged skills shortage in the forestry profession. The speed with which our graduates gain employment reflects this. Graduates from this course have progressed on to relevant employment in public sector organisations, NGOs and academic institutions both in the EU and overseas. This MSc course has also formed a stepping stone in post-graduate research and has produced high calibre research scientists in the fields of tree biology, forest science, and natural resource management.
This degree is accredited by the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF)
