Studying field survey techniques is valuable for anyone involved or interested in land management as you learn key practical skills such as how to use the relevant landscape and regulatory frameworks, designations and policies relating to the historic environment.

This module aims to introduce students to a range of survey techniques commonly used in field ecology and nature conservation. The course is designed to give a thorough theoretical and practical grounding in the techniques available. Field surveys and data collection are essential for base-line studies and for appropriate site/habitat planning, management and monitoring.

Field survey is a valuable skill when seeking employment in the environmental sector. With this in mind, the module provides an employability workshop on Microsoft Teams and a CV clinic.

Field Survey Techniques can be studied as a stand-alone course, but it is also a key module for the Certificate of Higher Education in Field Ecology at Aberystwyth University. This online, self-paced learning course enables you to study from home and participate in an online learning community. The course is delivered through Blackboard, our virtual learning environment and will include one or more live webinars.
