This programme of study has been designed to provide you with current research informed thinking balanced against a programme of field work and practical activities to prepare you for the workplace. Residentials and fieldwork During your first year you will have the opportunity to take part in a residential experience. This will be a chance to meet new friends and take part in a number of challenges to develop your problem solving and team working skills. Activities could include rock climbing, gorge scrambling, mountaineering, walking, canoeing and kayaking. Building on your first year, you will gain additional experience through a residential trip and fieldwork in both your second and third years. You will also have access to our student societies that are regularly engaged in a variety of adventure tourism activities.
