About This Course

The course, fully accredited by the Institute of Chartered Foresters, provides students with detailed knowledge and expertise of direct relevance to the modern forest manager and those working in associated disciplines.

Bangor University has been teaching forestry for over 110 years and since 2000, it has offered a range of exciting and innovative part-time distance learning forestry courses. The MSc forestry (distance learning) course 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. The 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.

The course is designed to be of specific interest to:

Individuals seeking academically-based education in forestry;
Individuals seeking a career in the management of trees and forests;
Individuals wishing to undertake further study while employed in the forestry, or a related, profession.

Teaching and learning for each module is supported by a guided reading handbook plus various learning materials hosted on our ‘virtual learning environment’, such as online lectures and seminars, e-books, journal articles, scientific reports, podcasts, and discussion forums.

The course is made up of 120 credit modules, each designed to run over a period of three months. Each module is delivered via comprehensive in-house course material, accompanying course guides and web-based support, based on the Blackboard™ virtual learning environment (VLE). A number of optional assignments may be submitted by students as the module progresses, to give realistic feedback on progress with the material.
