During your degree you will visit a range of relevant sites, reserves and other locations as well as receive talks and sessions conducted and led by subject specialists. Destinations may include the North York Moors National Park, YWT Spurn National Nature Reserve and the RSPB’s Bempton Cliffs reserve.

Some visits will be free, but others may incur a charge varying with the nature of the visit and the distance travelled. Such charges will be kept to a reasonable rate and we would not expect this to exceed £300 over the course of the year.

You will be required to undertake 76 hours of work placement activity at each level of your Foundation Degree.

Before you begin your course, you’ll need to make sure you’re prepared with the right equipment. Many of our courses need specialist health and safety clothing, but we’ve made it simple - some of your essentials and college branded clothing can be bought from our online shop.
