Nature conservation and the management of wildlife has always been at the heart of Sparsholt, and these courses provide the opportunity for both school leavers and people looking for a change of career to build knowledge and demonstrate professionalism to this important and growing sector.

Strong industry links, the depth of knowledge and expertise of our staff and outstanding natural facilities on our doorstep make Sparsholt College a natural choice for the study of habitat and rural resources management.


Campus Habitat

  • College Home Farm, with its incorporated wildlife zones under the Countryside Stewardship scheme, and other developing habitat areas

  • Wildlife Observation Unit, constructed walkway and ancient woodland area

  • Fishing lake, attractive to wildlife and wetland species

  • Deer park with a herd of Sika deer

  • Game Unit, officially opened in 2011, for rearing pheasant and partridge

  • Great links with the industry across the whole country and abroad


Industry Links

The College has also established close links with a range of landowners throughout the country and has unprecedented access to a wide variety of sites, so that students can experience a diversity of wildlife and its management at first-hand.

Site visits and talks given by visiting speakers with extra expertise are integrated into our courses.
