Geographical remit: 


Field Studies Council (FSC) believes that the more we understand about and take inspiration from the world around us the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations.


In all we do, we are committed to:

  • Delivering first hand experiences. FSC uses the environment to inspire. Taking in its sights, sounds and smells has the ability to motivate, deepen knowledge and broaden horizons.
  • Providing opportunities for everyone. FSC strives to provide opportunities for everyone regardless of age, ability or background. Some of our proudest moments have arrived when trying to help those that would not otherwise benefit from an FSC experience.
  • Sustainability for the future. A commitment to the environment is at the heart of everything FSC does: how we run the charity, what people learn on our courses and through our publications.
  • A caring attitude.  From the way we treat our customers, our staff, the environments we work in and the feel of our locations, FSC demonstrates a personal approach with great care taken in everything we do.



Each year over 140,000 people experience FSC, many through our UK wide network of locations.

  • Learning outside the classroom experiences with their school, college or university.
  • Professional training courses for environmental professionals and teachers.
  • Natural history courses.
  • Identification guides and free resources.
  • Funded projects both in the UK and abroad.
  • Art courses.
  • Family holidays.
  • Campaigns for the right to outdoor learning and fieldwork
