Join us on Saturday 30 August to get a sense of life as a student studying Geography, Biological Sciences, Ecology, Earth or Environmental Science. 

You can: 

  • Go to an introductory subject talk and taster lectures, for instance you can hear Professor Nigel Clark talk about ‘Guerrilla Mapping! – how citizens measured the Gulf of Mexico oil spill’. Professor Bill Davies will outline his exciting research on ‘Biological Sciences to Address the Challenge of Global Food Insecurity’
  • Take a tour of our teaching facilities and research laboratories and talk to staff about the courses on offer. 
  • Watch demonstrations of some of the ground breaking research work by our top academics
  • Find out about our partnerships with the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, which has laboratories on site, the Environment Agency, Rothamsted Research and many more. 
  • Learn about opportunities to work with environmental organisations and businesses, many based within the department, during placements or on a dissertation.
  • Hear about our amazing field trips to the Amazon, Croatia, Spain, New York and in the UK

Prospective postgraduate students will have their own programme including tours, demonstrations and the chance to discuss with academic staff which course would suit them best. 

Between 10am-3pm, there will be a chance to tour the wider campus including the library, students’ union and student accommodation as part of the Lancaster University Visit Day.
