About

The Forestry (Distance Learning) course at Bangor University has an excellent reputation for producing high quality, adaptable and professional graduates. Many of our alumni have successfully used the course to help them change careers, gain promotion, develop their business and/or simply satisfy their curiosity for trees and forests. 

Overview

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.
