We are keen to encourage expeditions outside the UK organised by students to carry out research.
Previous student-led Newcastle University expeditions have been carried out in a wide range of countries including those as diverse as Brazil and Bulgaria, Iceland and Indonesia, Kazakhstan and Kenya, Greenland and Ghana, Tibet and Tanzania, Norway and Namibia, and Peru and the Philippines.
We have a proven record of this kind of activity stretching back over 50 years and are currently recognised by the Royal Geographical Society as one of the leading UK universities for student expeditions.
Organising an expedition is extremely demanding, especially if you have little previous experience. The University Expeditions Committee is able to offer advice and, in some cases, financial assistance to help support what it sees as safe and worthwhile expeditions.
