The BSc (Hons) Forest Management* is a highly practical course that will give you all the skills and knowledge you need to become a successful forest manager. If you are looking for a rewarding career, where you can provide professional advice to the land-based forestry sector and help secure our forests for future generations to enjoy, then this course is for you. You will study at the Scottish School of Forestry campus of UHI Inverness. The degree builds on the industry-recognised HNC/HND in Forestry or Arboriculture and Urban Forestry in the first two years. A significant proportion of your work will be fieldwork-based projects where you will become experienced in the practical aspects of forest management. When you graduate you will have a technical management qualification and be experienced in all aspects of sustainable management in relation to forestry. *subject to revalidation.
