In your second year, you’ll have the chance to choose one of our compulsory field trips to the Austrian Alps, Mallorca in Spain, or to the Algarve region of Portugal.

In your third year, you’ll have the chance to choose one of our optional field trips to New Zealand or Costa Rica in South America and get first-hand experience of carrying out field-based research in an exotic and challenging environment.
