Abstract: The New Zealand School of Forestry (SoF) seeks to continuously improve the quality and relevance of its Bachelor of Forestry Science degree. In support of this ongoing effort, the SoF conducted in 2017 a survey of all recent graduates of that degree and their employers in forestry and allied sectors. The survey was designed to assess how well the degree prepares graduates for their professional careers and to gain insight into improving the educational experience offered by the SoF. This article summarises the key findings of that survey and offers suggestions for improving that degree, which is already held in high regard by graduates and employers alike.
