Course summary

About the course

The course is delivered at University Centre Myerscough and awarded by the University of Central Lancashire. The course is ideal for anyone who wants to work in this rewarding and exciting industry, or for those people currently working in Arboriculture. Employers look for a combination of managerial and technical skills in the science and technology of tree care. This course integrates both these aspects to ensure that you will be equipped with the necessary skill set for entry level work in the arboriculture sector.

You will learn how to identify and survey trees and integrate tree biology and soil science into tree care. A focus is also given to tree production and establishment highlighting a range of current and innovative new practices to help meet the challenge of planting trees in urban locations. The development of work-related practical skills and experiences is an integral part of the course with a dedicated module covering work skills.

Students are expected to undertake extensive independent study and research to support lectures, seminars and assessments. Group work and group presentations form an important part of the course.
