The course usually offers several field trips options. Recognising that not all students want to or are able to go  abroad, these trips are optional, and are therefore not reflected in the course fees. The cost of the field trips varies from minimal to £800, depending on location, and is additional to the course fee. Previous field trips include India, South Africa, Palestine and Peru. These usually take place in late January, just before the beginning of Semester 2.  For those who cannot attend the field trips, an equivalent programme of work, which can be carried out locally, will be provided.

In addition to field trip costs, recent graduates have suggested a sum of £100-£200 per year is required to cover materials and printing costs during the taught Diploma stage, and a further £100-£200 for the MA dissertation printing and binding.
