Student field trips

Support your studies by developing your practical skills on one of our overnight or intensive field trips in Australia and overseas.

Working in the field offers you the chance to build on your knowledge, interact with environmental sites and tour active research stations. 

You can explore the wonders of a range of fascinating landscapes and locations, including Heron and North Stradbroke islands, Gladstone and Mount Isa, Central and North Queensland, New Zealand, Indonesia and Vietnam.

What our students say

The Vietnam field studies course offers a unique and extremely valuable way of experiencing a foreign country, which I found to be far more interesting and educational than if I had visited Vietnam simply as a tourist. The opportunity to interact with the students of CTU and stay in the homes of university lecturers provided an extremely enjoyable insight into the culture of Vietnam. I would recommend this course.
