This course is ideal for students with an appropriate Foundation Degree or HND to top-up to a degree in Countryside Management. It will help you to develop the principles of successful integrated countryside management and investigate their application in real situations such as nature reserve management. Emphasis is placed on the recreational use of the countryside and developing management skills, preparing graduates for jobs such as Countryside Rangers, Rights of Way Officers, Reserves Managers and Agri-Environment Project Officers. Learn about the countryside... in the countryside: It makes sense, really – if you are passionate about learning to manage and help shape the future of the countryside and the wider environment, you want to be right in the middle of it. Based in rural Shropshire, we are fortunate to be surrounded by countryside and environmental resources, ideal both for your studies and leisure time. There are the North Shropshire meres and bogs, the Long Mynd, Aqualate Mere, Offa’s Dyke National Trail and the world famous geological site of Wenlock Edge. Not to mention the Stiperstones, Shropshire Hills, local nature reserves, the Wrekin, Wildlife Trust sites and a host of National Trust and English Heritage properties and parks. We are within easy reach of the Welsh Mountains, Cannock Chase, Staffordshire Moorlands and the Peak District.
