Our Earth’s resources are limited, and factors including population expansion, global industrialisation and agriculture have stretched their ability to provide for our needs. Environmental geoscientists study the environmental and geological factors that have a direct impact on human existence, meaning that they’re the people we call on to solve these profound and far-reaching issues. Study Environmental Geoscience with an International Year at Royal Holloway, University of London and you’ll equip yourself with the skills and knowledge you need to progress to further postgraduate education or a rewarding scientific or technical career. Your final year will be spent studying abroad in a partner university in Canada, the United States, Australia or New Zealand, giving you the chance to experience a new culture, develop key skills and study unique geological and environmental conditions in situ. You’ll study in a prestigious department consistently ranked among the UK’s top 10 (The Complete University Guide and The Guardian 2016), and graduate with a Masters degree in a field offering many exciting graduate career opportunities. Our extensive range of state-of-the-art facilities gives you access to world-leading laboratories for geochemical analysis, sedimentology and palaeontology, giving you the chance to contribute to our leading research culture.
