Students build up their skills by working on the historic parkland as part of our practical courses, which are enhanced by highly relevant work experience placements and lectures by experts in their field.

Students look into methods to tackle the threats the natural world and biodiversity face at a time when it has never been more crucial and they really appreciate the amount of time they spend working outside.
