The Exploration Society supports teams of University of Glasgow students as they explore the world on zoological, geographical and marine expeditions. Over the past 90 years, hundreds of students have had the chance to undertake research in countries like Trinidad, Tobago, Egypt, Guyana, Sri Lanka, Iceland and Scotland. Expedition teams carry out research for 4th-year Honours and Masters projects.
Students from any subject area or year of study are eligible to join an expedition. The student-led expeditions are planned throughout the year and funded via personal contributions, grants and fundraising events. This requires a lot of commitment and work, but in return, going on an expedition grants student a wildly adventurous, unforgettable summer. Check out our website or Facebook to find out more!
