Content

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 or arboriculture 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 Inverness College UHI where you have the option to specialise in either forest management and conservation, or arboriculture and urban forestry. The degree builds on the industry recognised HNC/D 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 your chosen speciality. When you graduate you will have a technical management qualification and be experienced in all aspects of sustainable management in relation to forestry or arboriculture.
