All core field work, including overseas field trips in the second year, is provided free of charge.

‘The field’ is the ultimate laboratory, and learning to work in it is crucial to your development as an effective geographer, geologist or archaeologist.

Where will you explore on our field courses? Maybe Italy, Swiss Alps, Iceland or Berlin?
