By studying a course in Landscape and Countryside Management 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 Landscape and Countryside Management courses use our 1000 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 in landscape and countryside management, 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.
