Subject Area Overview

By studying at Hadlow College, you can become part of an industry which is focused on the conservation and restoration of British wildlife, its habitats and the surrounding countryside.

Our wildlife and conservation courses, which includes Landscape Management and countryside management, use our 1,000 acre estate to give you the real-life practical skills you will need, providing you with the ability to identify a range of plants and animals as well as an understanding of how to maintain the balance between protecting endangered species and opening up the countryside for access by the general public.

Ultimately, upon finishing your course at Hadlow College, your career could include a range of different opportunities, working for organisations as varied as private estates through to local government, charities and the voluntary sector e.g. Rangers, ecological consultants field surveying and estate manager.

Hadlow was the ideal choice for me. Its location is perfect and because some other members of my family also studied here, I already knew that its reputation and quality of courses was good. I'm really enjoying the course. It's quite varied with a lot of practical work as well as some classroom-based theory. It has given me a real insight into conservation and wildlife ecology, as well as a large range of skills which I can take with me once I finish. The other great thing is that there are lots of job opportunities within these industries at the moment so I know the skills I'm learning will be really helpful in making me stand out when I do look for a job. Once I've finished the course I would like to carry on and gain a degree in this area. The course has really opened my eyes to the possibilities that exist and I'm excited to be part of it.
