Geography University Tour to Iceland

Example study tour

Created for the University of Manchester

 

The University of Manchester required a group travel package to Iceland for students to participate in fieldwork where they could design and execute independent research. The aim was to give students the opportunity to appreciate key theoretical and methodological approaches used by geographers, demonstrate a detailed understanding of the nature of a dissertation, and understand the key requirements of a successful research project.

StudyLink created a 3-day study tour package to Reykjavík, Iceland, enabling students to develop a range of research skills and methods and encourage critical thought surrounding geological and ‘real world’ issues.
