Our Degree Programmes

Our degree courses are specially tailored to provide you with a broad understanding of the fundamental concepts in geology, as well as enabling you to pursue your own interest. All of our programmes are modular and our specialist degrees allow you to focus on the areas of Applied and Environmental Geology, Geophysics or Palaeontology.

All the programmes provide degree-specific modules from the second year onwards. In the third and fourth year you will also have a range of optional modules to allow you to study the topics that interest you most.

A unique characteristic of our programme structure is the flexibility in degree options. All degree programmes include a common core during the first year, enabling you to transfer between degrees at the end of the first year, subject to meeting the entry requirements for your intended degree.
