Course summary

Students who undertake the BSc degree (also referred to as an Ordinary degree) will typically complete their award in four years (including an industrial placement year), with successful completion of the award graded as either a pass (with commendation) or pass. The main difference between this and a BSc (Hons) degree, is the reduced volume of study and assessment required by the BSc degree. The BSc degree and the BSc (Hons) degree share a common first year, which provides an opportunity for transfer between the two degree types subject to academic performance.Modern environmental land management is a challenging multi-disciplinary field, and this course will train you as an effective practitioner with good knowledge and understanding of the relevant scientific, policy and legislative frameworks as well as sound people and project management skills.Strategies to protect our environment and to promote the sustainable use of natural resources at national, European and international levels are traditionally founded on principles of applied ecology and sustainable environmental management. However, in line with broader socio-economic changes, the practice of environmental land management has become more sophisticated, placing greater demands on the skills of staff at all levels of employment. As a result, Environmental Land Management graduates will be equipped with a thorough understanding of the underlying technical, economic and managerial principles, and the cultural, ethical and policy context of the sustainable management of the countryside.Skills learned will include:•species and habitat indentification and surveying skills•habitat management, planning and evaluation•pollution control and monitoring•project planning•interpreting legal framework documents•planning and mitigation•environmental management systems•co-ordinating species and habitat assessmentsKey features include:•Residential field trips in years 1 and 4 to underpin and contextualise what you learn.•A range of field trips and visits to relevant local and national organisations to provide real life experience and to meet professionals in their field of work.•Emphasis on applied environmental science.•A focus on the practical application of theory to give you the skills to succeed.4 years (full-time) including a one-year work placement. A three year programme is available for applicants with at least two years, full-time relevant work experience. Please contact Admissions for further information on this option.
