Fieldwork is any practical work carried out away from University premises by University staff or students for the purpose of teaching and/or research. It includes interviewing, social surveys, participant observation, archaeological research, and environmental surveys and data collection.
Extensive fieldwork is undertaken across the Social Sciences Division by staff and students covering a wide range of topics and activities and in a multitude of countries.
There are a number of procedures that must be followed and a variety of resources and training courses available to help staff and students execute safe, effective and successful fieldwork.
