The Forestry (Distance Learning) course at Bangor University course is designed to provide students with training in the management of forest resources, understanding of the scientific, academic and practical principles which underpin forest management and forest ecosystem function and the interrelationships between government, industry and communities’ forests and associated land-use.
Careers and Employability
The part-time nature of this course enables students to build their career alongside other work or personal commitments. Current students and recent graduates have secured jobs as commercial forest managers, forest surveyors, ecological consultants, forestry finance advisors and business start-ups. Careers prospects also include promotion for those already in the forestry or related professions. The part-time nature of the course opens up numerous opportunities for study, travel, scholarship and research and students are encouraged to take advantage of these.
