Summer Field School Programs
What is a Field School?
A field school is a program that includes one or more courses that are taught off-campus. Field schools combine academics with hands-on experiential learning “in the field,” allowing students to incorporate what they are learning in class with their international location.
Depending on the program, some field schools will include a course or partial course taught before students continue in the program overseas or will be taught entirely overseas. The overseas component of the University of Guelph field schools are offered in the Summer Semester, usually in May-June and are typically 3-6 weeks in duration.
