Accredited by the Geological Society of London, this is a practical, hands-on degree that involves a high level of fieldwork in addition to thorough academic study. Students explore the Earth and its evolution as a global-scale system, developing an understanding of the role of geology in our environment and communities and its place, in multidisciplinary topics. The course focuses on employability, transferable skills and practical learning. Trips to destinations such as Spain and Cyprus develop field skills, while the paid placement year opportunity helps build experience and a network of professional contacts. This is a flexible programme which allows students to specialise in areas of interest and career ambition.
