Environmental Science with Hazards and Disasters 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

Cornwall

In the second semester, you go on a week long trip in Cornwall. Here you will:

  • Learn and develop a variety of environmental fieldwork skills;
  • Study a range of topics, such as water resources, tourism and mine waste;
  • Complete work suggested by lectures and individual projects; and
  • Research controversial environmental issues.

Year 2

Tenerife, Spain

During Year 2, you will visit Tenerife. You will study a range of environments to identify and examine a range of natural hazards and disaster management interventions. This will include the study of volcanic processes that have formed the islands and to look at the possible generation of a tsunami.

Year 3

Western Cape, South Africa

In Year 3, you have the option of going on a non-European field trip, currently to the Western Cape in South Africa. The field trip provides an opportunity to apply your environmental hazard and disaster management knowledge and skills in a typically unfamiliar environment with distinctive challenges. In South Africa this includes:

  • Flash floods
  • Participation in hazard management exercises including forest fire management
  • Learning in multiple environments: from the city (eg. Cape Town) to rural landscapes

Watch our video and view the photos of a typical field trip.
