Here at Writtle College we provide a number of conservation courses that are designed to fully prepare our students for the modern challenges the environment is facing. Our conservation team have an abundance of knowledge and experience and work closely with our students to ensure they receive the support required during their studies and allow them to apply their experience to the industry after graduation.

The College's 220 hectare estate is a key learning environment for our students who benefit greatly from the variety of habitat management and surveying that regularly takes place on the estate.

Modern conservation management is a challenging multi-disciplinary field, and an effective conservation practitioner requires an excellent knowledge and understanding of the scientific, policy and legislative frameworks as well as sound people and project management skills. The College works closely with a variety of international, national and local organisations to ensure that the courses it delivers meet the expectations of future employers.

Writtle enjoys active relationships with a number of organisations, including:

  • Eberswalde University, Germany
  • Buglife
  • Natural England
  • Environment Agency
  • Countryside Management Association
  • Butterfly Conservation
  • Rural Community Council of Essex
  • Essex Wildlife Trust
  • Essex Amphibian and Reptile Group
  • Essex Biodiversity Project

After completing their conservation degree here at Writtle our students work in a variety of organisations including local wildlife trusts, councils, governmental agencies and charities. Alternatively, students are able to progress onto a postgraduate course at the College such as our MSc Sustainable Land Management under Global Change which enhances students' knowledge further.
