    Hi all,

    Do you know how the field trips are paid for? And whether they're subsidised? In that, are they generally affordable for students.

    I'm going to be starting Marine Biology with conservation and there might be some international field trips that I would have to pay for. I'm just wondering how much they ended up costing last year's students.

    Thanks,

    Hi, I can't speak for your particular university but I went to an open day at the University of Manchester and one of their international field trips cost around £1,000. If you're worried you should contact the university

    Blimey! That's a lot of money. Presumably then a lot of students don't end up going because they can't afford it?

    Hi wahaj17

    All international field trips that are at an extra cost and are usually anything from £300-£1,500 depending on where in the world you'll be going. ]

    You can email [email protected] to find out roughly the trips might cost you if you're thinking about going.

    Hope this helps
