the fees

Are you a volunteer with a group or organisation that carries out botanical recording, and do you intend to continue to record with them on an unpaid basis? If so you qualify for the low volunteer rate of £100.

You will have to obtain a reference from an established member of your group or organisation, stating that you have been with them for at least one year and that you are a bona fide volunteer.

The fee for non-volunteers is £300

APPLICATIONS OPEN IN DECEMBER. Please do not attempt to pay until you have been accepted on the course since it will first be necessary to assign you to a tutor.

Is there an experienced botanist in your own local group who could act as your tutor? If so, please approach them and refer them to the BSBI website where they can find full details of what is involved
