First year undergraduates escape the snow and cold in southern Spain

Posted on 28/01/2013

Lunch on the playa

The annual first year field course in Nerja, on the Andalusian coast, took place from 19th to 26th January this year.  As well as learning about sediments, river profiles, water quality, rural land use and depopulation, the geographies of austerity, the use of public space, new migrant identities, the historical geographies of the Spanish civil war, place branding and much, much more ... it was also a chance to escape the snow and ice of chilly England for a few days in the sun.

You can find more details about the fieldwork programme in the undergraduate degrees at Royal Holloway here. This year the second year trips will be heading to Malawi, New York and Ireland in a few weeks.
