Forestry and Woodland Management Foundation degree

Leo hood
5.0 15/09/2012
What I would highlight: The things i like most about this course were the lecturers such as Hugh morris and John Cornford who were experienced practitioners as well as accomplished scientists. Both have now moved on, but leaving in their wake a fantastic curriculum that will set any potential foresters, arborists, and even agro-foresters such as myself, up for a bright future in industry, conservation or both. moreover, the grounds are quite extensive so there is space to learn practically as well as theoretically in the woodlands and landscaped areas. I especially like the Dendrology course where over 100 species were learnt over 2 years. Silviculture was also taught comprehensively and provides the backbone for forest/woodland management and I could not have done without that in my current pursuit of agroforestry.
What could be improved: least of all I disliked the lack of transport but the college does provide its own bus early in the morning and in the evening. looking back, there's not much i could say about the course negatively. there was a high work load but in hindsight this forced students to be the best and i haven't had such a high workload since.
Would you recommend this course?: Yes
