We offer a rich combination of seminars and interactive events, including field studies . These include the opportunity to go on a field course on the Mediterranean island of Mallorca in the Easter vacation of your first year, when the orchids are in bloom. A tropical or UK-based field course builds on this in your second year. In Year 3, you will have the opportunity to go on a placement with one of our more than 100 partner organisations in the UK or abroad.
