Programmes

Fieldwork

Fieldwork contributions

All our programmes provide hands-on experience in real field situations at no extra cost. We supply specialist equipment for working in the field, supporting the widest range of field experiences linked to classroom-based teaching. (Students are asked to make a contribution towards the cost of food whilst away and a deposit for some fieldwork equipment).

During the first few weeks at Cardiff Uni, you will go on many field trips. These not only help to teach you about new techniques you will use throughout the three years and to give you an over view of the course, but they are also a great opportunity to meet new people. When you are dropped off on one of your first trips, you can’t help but make friends. Whilst all my flatmates were sat in lectures day after day, I was out exploring Cardiff and the surrounding area which was a great way to start the year. Also, not many people get to wear a hard hat and hi-vis jacket during their degree!
