This course is specifically designed for research students who will be undertaking field-based research in Southeast Asia for the first time. However, the course is open to anybody with an interest in field work, and we welcome participants from across the University.

In this course, we discuss some of the fundamental considerations that you should be making before you undertake field work. As with any project, having a good understanding of the underlying issues, processes and potential problems will help you to plan your field work project to maximise your time at your site(s). Given that every project will have deadlines, it’s important that you take the time to both plan ahead and consider the risks of your project. This will ensure that your project is not derailed by occurrences that could have been avoided or mitigated if you’d only thought about them before you left.
