"On-the-ground" first-hand experience through fieldwork
An important aspect of our SSCP DTP students' PhD is engagement in fieldwork. Students are encouraged to explore opportunities out of the lab or office to gain knowledge, data, and hands-on experience to support their research. Fieldwork is conducted in many areas of the UK as well as around the world. Currently, excursions have taken our students to Cornwall, India, Rwanda, South East Canada, Malaysian Borneo, South Georgia, the Pyrenees, Greece, Germany, Cyprus, the USA and Antarctica just to name a few.
Hear from some of our students who have completed fieldwork by clicking on the links below. We encourage our students to write an informative reflection post after they return from fieldwork so that others can learn from and share in their experiences.
