Student Geological Societies
Our student society organises many events including regular talks by external speakers and field excursions (recently Tenerife, Ingleton, Yorkshire Coast, Wales, the Lake District, mine visits and the Natural History Museum). The society also organises the Annual Ball, as well as parties and barbecues.
The Leicester University Society of Economic Geologist's (SEG) Chapter is an active, student run, academic society that hosts fortnightly talks by external speakers from industry and academia.
We organise field trips to places of interest to economic geology such as Devon, Parys Mountain and Alderley Edge, with visits to Cononish, Boulby Potash Mine, and Ecton Mine planned for the coming year. We also arrange groups of people to attend conferences and networking at venues around the UK, including London, Cardiff and Leeds. Each year we host our own Symposium, with previous themes including Gold and Sustainable Exploration and Development. This year's Symposium will focus on Critical Metals.
