Fieldwork enables you to explore ideas covered in the classroom in a real-world context. There are opportunities in each year of the degree programmes. In the first year, students are required to attend a non-residential fieldcourse within the UK, examining geographical issues and gaining experience in a range of analytical techniques. These fieldcourses are usually based on the Isle of Wight or in the New Forest. Students are again required to attend a non-residential fieldcourse, held overseas, in the second year of their degree programmes. These fieldcourses focus on providing training in research methods. Recent destinations for these fieldcourses include Amsterdam and Paris (BA students) and Tenerife and Northern Spain (BSc students). In the third year, students may select optional modules of advanced fieldwork, again based in overseas locations such as Berlin (BA) and Arolla in the Swiss Alps (BSc). Details of the funding basis for fieldwork are available.
