This module gives students the opportunity to see how the principles of conservation that are discussed in earlier parts of their course are put into practice. During visits to areas which are managed for a range of objectives, students meet conservation managers working on behalf of different stakeholders and engage in discussion with them.
The MSc Conservation and Land Management comprises visits to nature reserves and farms run by Welsh Government organisations, trusts, local authorities, community groups and private individuals.
Grade C- to C+: The report gives a factually correct account of a topic that is discussed during the field trip, including some quantitative information. The accompanying literature review shows evidence of ability to collate information from a variety of sources; the majority of the material included is relevant although some relevant literature sources are not included. An attempt has been made to link the principles and theory described in the literature review to the practice(s) seen during the trip. Both the report and the review are logically structured, the majority of the writing is clear, and referencing uses a standard system.
