Travel with us and get a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to study in destinations few have ever been.

For their second field course, all students can choose amongst any of our national courses (GEG4920, GEG4921, GEG4001) or international courses (GEG4000, GEG4001, GEG4100, GEG4128).
You would like to do even more field courses? Students may, if they wish, take several national or international courses.
