Fieldwork can be one of the most stimulating and enjoyable experiences of your time at the University of Leicester. Our staff are involved in field-based research worldwide, ensuring that our teaching draws on active field experience, and our carefully-designed field programme ensures that you will progress from undertaking basic field observations to synthesising complex geological histories, using both your own observations and the broad-based geological knowledge you gain in your university studies.
The cost of fieldwork is dependent on the year of study, destination, and whether the trip is core or optional to the programme.
Fieldwork gives you a chance to put into practice the skills you learn in lectures and practicals, expand on them and ultimately to become a better geologist. It gives you a chance to meet other people on the course and develop close friendships, as well as gaining new ideas by sharing knowledge.
