Field Studies Council Research Opportunities

Postgraduate students may use Field Studies Council field centres or field sites to carry out research – either as a one off visit or at regular intervals.

Many of the centres have years of past field data and have already published research separately or working with others. They are also interested in research into the impact of fieldwork and outdoor learning on student attainment and on developing innovative use of ICT in the field.

Subject to availability, students can stay for longer periods. Subsidies or grants may be available to support research or residential costs either from the FSC or from other funding streams.

Slapton Field Centre and Slapton Ley NNR in South Devon offer a wide range of research opportunities in Devon.

Millport Field Centre can offer free summer research placements to students from London Universities.

Kindrogan Field Centre in Perthshire, Scotland offer a wide range of research opportunities in the Southern Highlands 

Students or researchers may contact FSC centres directly or for more general information on what research opportunities is currently available contact Dr Mark Ward (FSC Higher Education Officer) on 01743 852100 or by email
