Field Studies Council (FSC) has a great range of opportunities for young people aged 16-25 who are interested in learning more about the natural world. Have fun, learn something new and stand out from the crowd.
We are a charity that wants to help people understand and be inspired by the world around us. With the natural environment increasingly under threat FSC wants to help and inspire future generations who care about our environment. We can help you develop your interest and passion in this area, meet like-minded people and have exciting experiences.
Considering a career in this field?
If you are at school or college making subject choices why not look at our summer camps, where you can spend a few days learning more about an area and whether it is right for you. There are lots of options below too for enhancing UCAS or job applications, helping you to stand out – from Duke of Edinburgh to volunteering.
Many graduates are leaving university with ecology or biology degrees but not enough practical identification and general natural history skills. If you are already studying at university you can gain these skills with FSC, putting yourself ahead and also ensuring we keep these abilities and knowledge alive for future generations.
For those looking for jobs in this sector our training opportunities will boost your CV and offer invaluable experience.
How can I pay for this?
The costs for different opportunities do vary, some are heavily subsidised such as Young Darwin Scholarship and Tomorrow’s Biodiversity. We also have some funding available for some of our other opportunities via our Young Environmentalists scheme (see below for details).
Please feel free to contact us by phone, email or social media for more information about any of our opportunities for young people.
