Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Courses for approved A level geography specifications

FSC has now finalised its programme of geography fieldwork opportunities at A level with a set of courses carefully designed for the new specifications for geography in England and Wales.

The latest FSC geography fieldwork courses have been developed by our experienced education team for those studying the new A level geography specifications taught from September 2016 onwards.  They will offer students inspiring outdoor experiences while also covering a range of content from the course.

Choose from a range of stunning environments to study, both physical and human - from coasts to cities - to ensure the course is as relevant and useful as possible for you and your students.
