The cross disciplinary nature of many geography degrees fits well with the field sites, landscapes, settlements and habitats accessible from our field centres. Many of our centres are within National Parks and are able to offer sessions on local conservation management issues.

Those in mountainous areas offer scope for upland or mountain geographical studies. Our coastal centres have access to sites where coastal management and coastal processes can be studied.

Most centres have good river sites nearby and many are also convenient for human geography – rural settlements, tourism and urban studies.

All our courses offer:

  • Fully Covid-secure centres
  • High quality field sites – either within walking distance or a short drive away
  • Fully risk assessed field sites with prior access agreements for all FSC delivery
  • Well equipped, WiFi enabled classrooms, lecture rooms and laboratories
  • Range of field equipment, microscopes and species identification guides

Course content on university trips can be entirely taught by FSC staff or co-taught with university staff whilst FSC tutors are able to lead the fieldwork component or to provide specialist lectures. Alternatively, courses can be completely self-taught by university staff using our centres as a base. You are welcome to a free pre-visit to help plan your course.
