The department has also been using external organisations to aid the learning experiences of our students. The Geography department has developed excellent links with the WELB Field Centre at Magilligan. The Field Centre is located in Binevenagh Area of Outstanding Beauty (AONB), one of the most varied and unspoilt parts of the coast of Northern Ireland. The immediate area includes contrasts between upland environments on the basalt escarpment and coastal lowland with extensive sand dunes. The Centre has excellent access to high quality habitats including many nature reserves.
