Do you have an interest in the outdoors? Do you love to kayak, climb, canoe or spend time in the hills and mountains? If so then this is definitely the course for you. Approved by the University of Central Lancashire, the Outdoor Adventure Studies course aims to give you a solid grounding in both the practical and theoretical aspects of outdoor adventure.
Your tutors will promote personal growth through challenging, flexible and high quality learning experiences that stem from years of involvement in the outdoor and other related industries.
Due to the excellent local links we are able to access high class venues including two climbing centres, a state of the art high ropes course and three water sports venues, all within ten minutes drive of the University Centre. We have established links with other outdoor centres in the immediate area as well as further afield, all of which are a great asset for the application of skills developed during the course and also for work based learning opportunities.
Practical sessions, such as canoeing and kayaking, take place at the local docks in Liverpool progressing into environments such as the rivers and coastlines of North Wales. Hill walking activities take place in Snowdonia and the Lake District National parks, whilst rock climbing will take place both locally in the various climbing centres based in the city and further afield at venues in Lancashire and the Peak District National Park.
