Cost of practical experience

We fund all transport and camping fees for compulsory practical trips, and some major outdoor equipment items, such as canoes, climbing gear and snow tents.

You will need to purchase your own essential personal outdoor equipment such as pack, sleeping bag, clothing and walking boots. You will also need to bring your own food.

Equipment list

New students will learn more about equipment requirements.

NOTE: It is recommended that you do not purchase new gear until you know the course requirements. These will be outlined in the first few weeks of Semester 1.
