However, this trip became significant as it introduced the skills required to study geography at degree level.
After arriving at the hostel, we spent the next few days learning the ropes of different field techniques that we would then use for the duration of our course. The variety of activities allowed us to make the most of the experience and gave a true welcome to our degree from the Geography department.
A highlight was meeting lots of new people and becoming great friends with a group of girls that have stayed with me throughout my time at Hull. So, although the thought of the Shropshire field course was initially scary, it later became one of the most rewarding moments of my student experience.
History and social media in Berlin
In Spring 2019, we visited Berlin as part of our second-year module. Berlin was a place I had never been to before, so it felt exciting to have the opportunity to go with my course. The trip allowed us to study cultural, heritage, and tourism geographies in a real-life setting.
