GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT THE NATURAL RESOURCE USE PROGRAM
The Natural Resource Use Program is the ideal choice if you want to work within the field of natural resource in the future. If you choose to study at our schools you will get an education which many students experience as unique. Perhaps that feeling arises since every day is filled with meetings between people, animals and nature. Or from the fact that the theoretical knowledge you get will be put into practise the very same day. Or that you learn things that will never be out of date.
Regards to nature, ecology and evolution permeates all teaching. The National Resource Use Program lasts for three years and qualifies for university studies. You can choose from six different areas of study: horticulture/gardening, animal care, zoo and tropical facilities, agriculture, horse breeding, forestry and transportation. Adult learning exists on both basic level and as further education for those who has already acquired a basic education within any national resource use area.
WHAT PROFESSION DO YOU CHOOSE?
The natural resource use education is wide and many doors will be open for you when you leave school. The different kinds of education lead to a great deal of different occupations and in many cases qualifies you for further education at colleges and universities. In some areas you will also be ready to start your own business after having finished your studies.
