The course is delivered by a dedicated team of tutors with industry experience and close relationships with employers, landowners and estates allowing students to gain practical experience and carry out ecological studies and to practise their estate skills. We have good access to upland, moorland, lowland, wetland, forest and river habitats. Our location means we can easily access the coast as well as areas such as the North York Moors National Park.
