Field Studies Council

field studies council logoThe environmental education charity Field Studies Council, FSC, is a leading provider of science, geography and cross-curricular learning outside the classroom, welcoming nearly 3,000 schools each year to our locations. One in four A level biology students and over half of all A level geography students visit our locations each year, as well as thousands of primary and secondary pupils. As a charity we are also able to offer financial support to groups and individuals who are disadvantaged through our own Bursary Fund and Kids Fund.

FSC is an environmental education charity providing informative and enjoyable opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, and understand the environment:
- Learning outside the classroom experiences with their school, college or university
- Professional training courses for teachers and environmental professionals
- Identification guides and free resources
- Funded projects both in the UK and abroad
- Campaigns for the right to outdoor learning and fieldwork

We have field centres across the UK so you can choose the location to best suit you – whether it’s a London park, Pembrokeshire coastline or the Scottish Highlands. Our field teachers are passionate about the outdoors and they deliver fieldwork and outdoor learning all year round. Courses are carefully developed to meet curriculum requirements and our history of over 70 years means you can trust us to provide your next field trip. Find out more about our locations below.
