Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

Environmental Science

FSC centres across the UK offer inspiring locations for A/AS level AQA Environmental Science field courses with easy access to a wide variety of field sites including rivers, ponds, woodlands, and grasslands. Some locations also have coastal and upland environments, as well a range of sites where human impact can be assessed.  

AQA Environmental Science5 day

Our bespoke courses are designed in conjunction with experienced field teachers to cover core parts of the specification, and particularly focus on principles, skills and techniques required as part of the Research Methods unit and as listed in “Working Scientifically” and “Maths Requirements”. A problem-solving approach to teaching allows students to develop these skills whilst gaining an understanding of key concepts and underlying scientific principles.
