Fourth year fieldwork

Fourth-year students have the option of an overseas field course, where you will use multidisciplinary data to unravel complex geologic relationships and the evolution of a region. There will also be the option of a UK-based field course.

Advanced field course - Overseas

This is the culmination of your field studies. We visit a region of outstanding geological interest and explore its geological evolution. Recent trips have been to the Alps and to Sicily and the School varies the area from time to time. You will need to use all your existing field experience and research skills to get the most from this module.

Different combinations of field modules are available for students on each degree course - you should check the listing on each degree page to see modules available for that degree. Current field locations are listed, but changes occasionally occur, in which case courses will be replaced by another of similar quality.
