Samer landed skills that matter

Getting to know where our food comes from and being in contact with the livestock were my favourite parts of the course. I have gained knowledge that will help me run my own farm in the countryside one day. Samer studied agriculture and wildlife management.

Career prospects

Farm Manager

As a farm manager, you will plan finances and production to maintain farm progress as well as undertake practical activities, such as operating machinery and feeding livestock.

Nature Reserve Manager

National parks, local wildlife trusts and large estates require rangers, wardens, and experts. You could help build hedges and dry-stone walls, as well as maintain biodiversity in rural and urban green spaces.

Ecologist

Ecologists look at relationships in the natural world; studying how animals, plants and humans interact with each other. You will often work outdoors conducting fieldwork and then examine your findings in a laboratory.
