Field Studies Council (FSC) is a leading provider of fieldwork opportunities for all ages.

FSC has developed specific fieldwork courses for IB Diploma in Biology, Environmental Systems and Societies and Geography, developed for the latest specifications.

These courses follow the course subject guide, designed to cover both syllabus requirements and the conditions required by the internal assessment criteria, whilst offering the most cost effective way of visiting an FSC Centre.

If your group is travelling from overseas we can arrange additional activities in the UK.

You can also enjoy additional activities with us during your stay such as adventure or teambuilding.
