During your studies you’ll be exposed to a variety a techniques for collecting, analysing and reporting field data. Fieldwork activities are designed to allow you put the skills you’ve learned in the classroom into practice in new environments.

Our students get to work alongside world-leading researchers in field sites in the Canberra region, around Australia and abroad in Vietnam and Fiji.

More than 40% of our courses include field-based activities, so you’ll have plenty of opportunities to get out of the classroom and into the field. Some examples of courses with off-campus activities include:
