Environmental Hazards & Disaster Management BSc(Hons): Field trips

Find out about the opportunities for field trips as part of this course

Fieldwork is an important part of our environmental hazard and disaster management teaching. It deepens your understanding and brings the subject to life.

View our image gallery at the bottom of the page for an idea of what your fieldwork might involve.

Year 1

Isle of Wight

The entire School of Geography, Geology and the Environment visits the Isle of Wight for a long weekend in the autumn. This is a great opportunity to get to know other students and meet staff informally.

Each degree course will have specific field destinations and you will be introduced to the various methodologies you will use in the field.

Year 1/2

Tenerife

During Years 1 or 2, you will visit Tenerife for a week to study the volcanic processes that have formed the islands and to look at the possible generation of a tsunami. You will also visit the international astronomical observatory on Teide.

Year 3

Crete and Santorini

During Year 3, you have the option of going to Crete and Santorini. Here you will study phenomena such as earthquakes and volcanic activity. You might look at evidence that a major eruption on Santorini caused a tsunami that adversely affected the Minoan civilisation (3000–1050 BC) in Crete, for example.
