Fieldwork is an essential part of the Hazard and Disaster Management MSc. As well as contextualising the academic aspects of the course, fieldwork is used to:
You will undertake a supervised week-long visit to a European field destination affected by multi-hazards (usually to Tenerife in June). You will conduct hazard, risk and vulnerability assessment of the area and evaluate existing hazard management strategies by the regional/local authorities.
Fieldwork is an important part of learning key skills associated with hazards, and as such some field work is compulsory. The University typically requires students to contribute financially to the cost of fieldwork.
