Overseas Geography Fieldtrips

Fieldwork is to geography what strawberries are to cream. Schools and colleges that include a fieldwork element in their geography coursework are far more likely to see a strong improvement in their students’ grades as they get the chance to apply practical first hand analysis to theoretical classroom teaching. Students will also develop a deeper knowledge and understanding of geographical processes, and acquire lots of new skills; both individual and teamwork.

While we are lucky to have many fantastic destinations for our geographical fieldwork studies here at home, taking students beyond the UK opens up far more of the subject, allowing them to experience natural environments that simply do not exist here. We are thinking about places like Iceland where glacial and volcanic activity can be viewed up close. The Bay of Naples where students can study tourism and population. The growth and development of Paris from a small settlement on the Seine to a world city. And the deserts and mountains, the sights and smells, of magical Morocco.

Once you begin to research the range and scope of overseas geography trips, you really are spoilt for choice, though deciding where to go and what aspects of geography to study will be influenced by your classroom subject topics.

Geography fieldtrips are especially suitable for those studying: living with the physical environment, natural hazards, challenges in the human environment, the changing economic world, and the challenges of resource management.

You can be assured that the geography trips we list here are curriculum focused, and operated by specialist companies, who all have years of experience delivering enjoyable and rewarding geography fieldtrips for thousands of UK school pupils.
