Sparsholt College’s countryside campus is the perfect learning environment for Game and Wildlife management students to develop their deer an estate management skills.

An established  park herd of Sika Deer reside on the campus, and involvement in deer stalking and local shoots helps to develop an understanding of the importance of robust systems of health and safety management. Students are involved in the management of the deer herd, which includes culling and venison production.

Other standout facilities for Game and WIldlife students on the College campus include a one-hectare fishing lake, which attracts wildlife and wetland species, a semi-ancient natural woodland area, and a fleet of 4×4 vehicles, such as quad bikes and Land Rovers.

The Game and Wildlife expert teaching team have outstanding industry contacts, and students benefit from this with excellent access to exciting work placements and study tours across the country and via local estates. Through these industry links, students can develop an understanding of commercial pheasant and partridge shooting, stalking, grouse management and a range of shoots from large commercial, to part time keepered enterprises.
