Autumn distance learning courses

We’re pleased to announce that we will be running three distance learning courses this Autumn, with details as shown below.

Fossils for all – not just the paleontologists’!
This course is for everyone who wants to know more about fossils. It deliberately sets out to show how fossils can be fun by missing out the boring bits and concentrating on treating fossils as living organisms that fit into an ecosystem.
The course runs as two parts with Units 1-10 before Christmas and 11-20 starting in January.

Course fee: £85.00 by email and £100.00 by post. Special offer, both parts £150.00 (email only). Commences September 25, 10-weeks.

Geology of the British Isles
Join us on the journey of a lifetime as we trace the amazing history of our islands over some 3 billion years. Prepare for a bumpy ride as we crash our way around the Earth’s surface in a series of plate collisions. Experience violent volcanic eruptions, mountains as high as the Himalayas and fabulous tropical paradises.

Course fee: £85.00 by email or £100.00 by post. Commences September 11, 13-weeks.

Steps towards the Rockface
Our popular introductory course for anyone wanting an overview of geology at entry level. The course covers all major aspects of rocks, minerals and fossils, along with information about how the Earth works, geological history and Earth resources.

This course runs for 11-weeks from September 25 and is suitable for adults and students age 14+.
Cost £85.00 by email/Moodle (£60.00 for student under-19) or £100.00 by post. This includes a free day trip.
