BEES in the Field
Mon, 28 Mar 2011
At this time of year, many BEES students and staff are involved in field trips. The School of BEES prides itself on maintaining excellent quality field studies along with thorough classroom and laboratory based teaching and learning. Students and external examiners alike, consistently praise the School for the breath and quality of the field trips offered.
For example, first year students taking part in the "Geological Evolution of Ireland" module have just returned from a four-day residential field trip to Northern Ireland where, amongst other activities, they visited the Giant's Causeway, Ireland's only natural World Heritage Site (see image above).
Also in the school, staff and students will shortly begin a course in practical field ecology based in the Algarve.
The School of BEES also runs residential and one-day field trips to Millport (Scotland), the Burren, Killarney National Park, Glengarriff and Lough Hyne in West Cork.
