Content

Building on year one, the HNC Countryside and Environmental Management, the second year develops your technical and academic skills across the environmental and sustainability fields, including environmental impacts in business and industry. You’ll also develop your transferable skills, such as report writing, critical analysis and presentation skills, to prepare you for the job market or further studies.

As with all environmental courses at SRUC, lecture-based learning is heavily supplemented by field visits, external speakers, case studies and a study tour. This enables the knowledge gained in the lecture room to be placed firmly in an applied context.

Upon successful completion of this course, students may apply to join year three of the following degree programmes at SRUC: BSc/BSc (Hons) Environmental Resource Management, BSc/BSc (Hons) Countryside Management.
