Field trips

Enjoy the great outdoors? The Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences provides ample opportunity to explore it.

While at Manchester I enjoyed the field trips the most; they gave me the chance to apply the knowledge I gained in the classroom.

Field trips are a key component of our undergraduate degrees, allowing you to put into practise the skills you learn in lectures and laboratory classes.

You'll head to geologically and environmentally fascinating locations in the UK and abroad, with options that can let you travel as far afield as Ecuador and the Himalayas. You'll learn first-hand the techniques practised by professionals and get a true feel for life as a geologist, geochemist or environmental scientist.

Just some of the locations you could go to include France; Guatemala; Italy; Montserrat; Nicaragua; Scotland; USA and Wales, as shown in the gallery of field trip images below:
