This is an independent project and has no specific lecture or practical syllabus. The course aims to make students integrate all their geological knowledge and skills gained on previous courses and challenges them to be more aware of their own academic and self management skills. The course is designed to encourage students to plan and execute a small research project and, whilst the initial choice of project is subject to staff scrutiny (for reasons of safety and geological suitability), the subsequent input and guidance from staff advisers is controlled by student request.
Two to three field notebooks will also be required at an approximate cost of £12 each.
There will be costs associated with the fieldwork.
35 days of individual fieldwork in an area approved by supervisor.
Information on contact teaching time is available from the course guide.
