Field Studies and Outdoor Activity
Courses are designed to link in with degree modules. Academic Schools from the University of Birmingham and other higher education institutions have used us on a regular basis for many years due to our location and facilities. e.g. School of Education PGCE Geography and P.E, Sport and Exercise in the Community Studies, BA Leisure Studies and Tourism.
The "transferable skills" of group working and taking individual responsibility are very obviously nurtured even in the short space of a week and the time spent at Coniston brings together students in a way that no amount of lectures and laboratory work can ever do.
