Field trips



For many of our students, the highlight of their course is the European field trip. This week-long trip, which takes place in early June after the summer exams, has been a fixture in the Institute's calendar since 1987. The detailed itinerary varies from year to year but usually involves a circular tour taking in parts of The Netherlands, Germany and Belgium.

Highlights seen along the way might include: a cycle tour of Delft, a planning walk around the redeveloped Rotterdam docks area, a review of the redesign of Utrecht main railway station, the Wuppertal Monorail, experiencing a properly integrated region-wide public transport system in the North Rhine.
