Course summary

This unique course is designed to match the requirements of the professional outdoor adventure industry, with a student-based approach allowing for individual interests to be explored. The course considers how engagement with the theoretical aspect of the subject can inform, challenge and support the real world practical context. In doing so, this situates you in a very strong position for employment within a wide range of academic and vocational contexts.Delivery of the programme is through a range of lectures, seminars, workshops and practical sessions. A number of week long residentials also form part of the delivery. These not only provide opportunity to develop practical skills, but also offer contextual examples to increase your understanding between academic theories and real world practice. Assessment modes include essays, portfolios, individual/group presentations, practical observations and reflective logs. There are no end of year exams.
