Fieldwork is a key component of all our degree programmes. It is an essential and enjoyable learning experience which helps to develop friendships and group identity, and provides a unique opportunity to learn important field techniques as well as a range of transferable key skills including project planning and teamwork.

Fieldwork takes place in all three years, depending on the degree programme that you are studying, in both the UK and abroad. Recent destinations include Cumbria, Anglesey, Ullapool, Mallorca, Amsterdam, and the Scottish Outer Hebrides.

We also make use of the surrounding urban, coastal and upland environments for local fieldwork excursions. Our fieldwork involves no additional financial contribution from students.
