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.
