Introduction for distance learning courses Winter 2018

We’re pleased to announce that we will be running four distance learning courses, with details as shown below. All courses commence January 8.

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.

This is Part 2 of the course, but you don’t have to have done Part 1. (If you wish you can purchase Part 1 for just £50.00 – email only).

Course fee £75.00 by email or £100.00 by post. (10-weeks)

Time Travellers’ Britain Series 3
This course is aimed at anyone who wants to learn more about aspects of the geology of the British Isles and the people behind much of what we know about it. We’ve previously presented 20 Units on the subject (you can obtain these if you wish). In the latest series we examine the geological contributions of Charles Darwin and Henry de la Beche and learn about areas including Arran, the Dorset Coast and Malvern Hills.

Course fee £75.00 by email or £100.00 by post. (10-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.

Course fee £75.00 (students under-19 £50.00) by email or £100.00 by post. (11-weeks)

Rocks from the Pressure Cooker – metamorphic rocks & processes
For many people, metamorphic rocks and processes are a complete mystery and considered too hard to tackle. Let us help you to understand how these rocks formed, how they are classified and discover what makes them unique. We have had excellent feedback when we have previously run this course.

Course fee £75.00 by email or £100.00 by post. (10-weeks)
