Course content

Whether you're already involved in outdoor activities or new to the field, our course will extend your understanding and knowledge to new heights. You'll learn to apply innovative strategies in outdoor practice and integrate them into other spheres of teaching and learning. We provide a thorough appreciation of how experiential learning can help with personal and social development, using lectures, seminars, practicals and field trips to give you a full-bodied education.

You will approach outdoor learning through utilisation of outdoor environments and activities. Students should be enthusiastic participants; there is no required level of outdoor technical skills, although graduates of outdoor-related degrees will find this course ideal for developing new skills and competences. The programme will be taught by core staff of the Outdoor Studies Department together with key visiting lecturers.
