Universities and Colleges


The Peak District National Park Learning and Discovery Team offers a comprehensive range of field studies for  FE and HE colleges and universities. Our aim is to promote an increased understanding of the Peak District National Park.

Particularly popular are sustainable tourism, visitor management, planning issues (associated with mineral extraction), wildlife conservation and ecology.

These can be delivered from a variety of locations in the National Park, or in some cases from your college or university. To discuss your visit further, please contact our team on 01629816373 or email
