All students in the undergraduate major participate in the Introductory Field Experience course offered after the first year of study. This course takes place in Bali, Indonesia, and is a 2 week intensive study experience. During this course students conduct various projects in the “natural laboratory”, and collect data that they later analyse in the Computational Earth Systems Science course in Year 2 of the programme.
Later field experiences vary based on specialisation. Students studying ecology take Introduction to Field Ecology after their third year and a new course in Advanced Field Ecology is will be offered from 2018. Students studying geosciences take both Introduction to Geological Field Mapping (2 weeks following their second year) and Advanced Field Course in Geology (4 weeks following their third year), in addition to several shorter class related field trips. These trips take place in various locations in Southeast Asia and beyond.
