Our research training modules in the first year are supported by numerous fieldwork projects conducted in a range of rural and urban settings, from Suffolk to Liverpool and the East End of London. The cost of all compulsory fieldwork in the School of Geography is covered through tuition fees.
Students can take part in specialist modules that involve longer, overseas field classes as their studies develop, including those also offered to our environmental scientists from the School of Biological and Chemical Sciences.
Students can also choose to engage in overseas fieldwork as part of their final-year dissertation. Some locations in which our recent undergraduates have undertaken primary data collection for their dissertation include: China, Russia, New Zealand, Madagascar, Iceland, India, Nepal, Austria, Portugal, Spain, the USA and Canada.
