Field Opportunities

At UNE we take full advantage of our surrounding environments to provide students with fantastic field experiences.

We provide a wide range of different fieldwork opportunities. These can vary from half day excursions to week long residential trips in Australia, but also overseas in Botswana, Cambodia and Bhutan.

Sami Dimond"I was lucky enough to travel to Bhutan earlier this year to study Himalayan Ecology and Biogeography. An amazing experience that enabled me to gain vast knowledge and appreciation of the ecology and incredible wildlife of Bhutan and the Himalayas. I left Bhutan knowing this is the field I want to work in and that I am following my heart."
