About the FSC

The Field Studies Council (FSC) is a pioneering educational charity committed to bringing environmental understanding to all.

Established in 1943, the FSC has become internationally respected for its national network of 18 education centres, international outreach training projects, research programmes, information and publication services and wide range of fascinating professional training and leisure courses. We provide informative and enjoyable opportunities for people of all ages and abilities to discover, explore, be inspired by, and understand the natural environment.

The FSC believes the more we know about the environment, the more we can appreciate its needs and protect its diversity and beauty for future generations.

FSC Centres

The FSC has 18 Field Centres through the United Kingdom.

Outdoor Classroom

Each year we welcome over 70,000 people on courses of various lengths to 18 Field Centres across the United Kingdom. Our ability to pass on to them a deeper understanding of the environment and our place in it is absolutely central to the work of the FSC. Clearly it is important to enhance the work teachers and students have done over a longer period and great pains are taken to ensure courses meet the demands of all levels of the main curriculum and specifications for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The FSC run a programme of over 500 courses for Individuals, Families and Environmental Professionals on offer at 14 Centres throughout the UK. Our courses are designed for people of all ages, background and abilities and vary in length from a day to a weekend to a week so whatever time you have to spare and whatever your interest we are sure that there will be an FSC course for you.
