We have close working links with many of the major wildlife and conservation organisations and are a recognised, leading land-based college in this field.

Our academic staff, all of whom have practical experience and qualifications relevant to their particular specialism, are also actively involved in the study and management of ecology, conservation and the countryside. 

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 students can experience a diversity of wildlife and habitats and their management first-hand. 

These important protected areas include the New Forest and South Downs National Parks, internationally important sites along the south coast and key habitats including Ancient Woodlands, Lowland Heathland and Chalk Downland.
