Field Classes

Fieldwork that will take you places

At Liverpool we feel that ecology is best understood using a hands-on approach and, therefore, we try to ensure that our students are given the opportunity to apply what they learn in the lecture theatre and lab out in the field.

We have numerous day trips that support many of our modules, including visits to many of the local natural environments that make the Merseyside area important for a whole range of animal and plant species. But the students’ work is supported also by several residential field courses, lasting about a week and in various locations around the UK, associated with each programme.
