This course has been designed with our partners at Cirencester College, utilising the expertise and resources of both institutions. The course has been developed in response to the increasing demand for employees within the environmental, conservation and heritage sectors by those organisations who are involved in the conservation and preservation of our landscapes, habitats and historic resources. Students complete a 30 day period of compulsory work experience, usually during the summer holiday between the first and second year, to experience wildlife, heritage and environmental management activities within the sector. A unique blend of academic and practical training is offered to ensure that you will be fully prepared either to enter into immediate employment or to progress onto a suitable BSc (Honours) Top-up Degree course here at the RAU or at other universities. For part-time study, please contact the Admissions Office for more information.
