Why do fieldwork?

Fieldwork is not just an important part studying geography, it offers a wonderful way of seeing the world, and a chance for personal development. Doing fieldwork can make a difference to your life and future career.

Benefits of fieldwork

Some of the benefits of fieldwork include:

  • Seeing geography and theories come to life: improving your knowledge of geography and understanding
  • Developing your skills: giving you a chance to learn skills in data collection and analysis, map work, observational and investigative skills, computer and technology skills, communication and mathematical skills
  • Appreciating environments: giving you a chance to experience and enjoy a wide range of environments and landscapes
  • Opinions and views: it helps you to understand other peoples and cultures, and your own views about social, political or environmental issues
  • Taking responsibility for your learning, gaining confidence and develop your skills: such as leadership and teamwork
  • It is enjoyable
