BSc (Hons) Conservation with Forestry
In addition to containing most of the world’s species, forests are the most biodiverse ecosystems. This degree provides insight into biodiversity, how people influence it, and how forests can reduce the negative impacts of human activities, including climate change. It will cover principles of biological conservation, forest ecology, and forest ecosystem function, as well as managing forests for conservation.
In the second year, students have the opportunity to study abroad. Lectures, seminars, workshops, practicals, and site visits to different woodlands, forests, and other habitats will be incorporated into students’ education. This degree is accredited by the Institute of Chartered Foresters (ICF) and fulfills part of the Professional Membership Entry requirement. In addition, Bangor will pay for the first year of the ICF student membership.
Within six months of graduating, most students find a conservation or forestry job in the UK or abroad. A placement year and an international experience year are also available at the university.
