A number of the leading nature reserves in the country are in close proximity. You will be taught within a short travelling distance of impressive field sites such as one of the finest saltmarsh and dune systems in Europe, restored mires of international importance, hay meadows and limestone woodlands. Almost adjacent to the University is a farm sympathetically managed for biodiversity and a mixed woodland. We provide a mixture of practical and fieldwork teaching along with opportunities to participate in residential trips around the UK and abroad at no extra cost. The first trip is in year one to Cyprus in the first few weeks of teaching.
Fieldwork is an engaging and important aspect of all our programmes, giving the degrees real-world value and developing teamwork skills. Each excursion provides the opportunity to learn and apply a range of fieldwork techniques and methodologies in a field environment.
