Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Young People 16+

FSC is committed to encouraging and nurturing young people who have an interest in the natural world and the outdoors to help them develop their skills and knowledge and perhaps consider it as part of their career choices.

Our courses below include Duke of Edinburgh Gold Residential and subject specific courses for undergraduates or younger students considering their future career paths.

We also offer a range of other ways to support young people and encourage them to develop their passion. See www.field-studies-council.org/young-people

All activities will be led by suitably qualified staff and, where offered, licensed activities will be covered by AALA (Adventure Activities Licensing Authority) certification.  We are also an Approved Activity Provider for Duke of Edinburgh.
