Higher Education - Universities and Colleges

 

Higher Education (HE) in Forestry, Arboriculture and Urban Forestry

 

In this section: 

 

BACKGROUND INFORMATION

Higher Education (HE) qualifications are typically offered by a university, or a college working in partnership with a university. Most students entering university or college to study higher education qualifications are 18 or above. Higher education qualifications are required for roles in management, consultancy and research. 

Undergraduate courses allow students to develop a wide range of graduate skills and specialist academic knowledge in their chosen discipline of forestry, arboriculture and/or urban forestry. Most colleges and universities encourage students to complete a work-based placement as part of their course. This typically adds one year to the completion time, but enables students to development technical skills and gain professional experience. 

Postgraduate courses are organised in two streams, either taught or research. The focus in most postgraduate courses is more on developing research skills, advanced analytical skills and technical writing. 

Most higher education forestry, arboriculture and urban forestry courses are accredited by the Institute of Chartered Foresters, the professional body for the forestry and arboriculture sectors. Full details of course accreditation can be found here

The following is a list of higher education institutions offering qualifications in forestry, arboriculture and urban forestry. The list includes all the courses starting in September 2016.  

Courses are offered in a variety of delivery modes: Full Time (FT), Part Time (PT) and Distance Learning (DL).
