Global field courses

A distinct feature of studying at the Penryn and Truro campuses is the opportunity to travel as part of your degree. Field courses allow you to apply the knowledge gained from our world-leading academics in the classroom to the real-world issues around us.

From the Isles of Scilly to Italy, Scotland to Namibia, London to the Galapagos Islands. We pride ourselves on delivering in excess of 50 residential field courses a year, across all years of study, and across most of our degree programmes.

Each year destinations change. So whilst we are giving you a glimpse here of the trips that have previously taken place, please be aware that specific locations may change. Due to the current Covid-19 situation, it may be necessary to provide students with alternatives to physical field courses.

Trevorrow Memorial Fund Travel Bursaries

A small number of travel bursaries are available to students of all degree programmes at the Cornwall Penryn Campus to help with the costs of field trips and project work. How to apply for the bursary.


Whilst it varies by fieldcourse, a large proportion of the cost of the trip is already covered by your tuition fees. You may be asked to contribute to the cost of flights or living expenses depending upon which course you are going on and whether it is optional or compulsory. For more information please contact
