This degree provides high-level training in geophysics with supporting geology, and including fundamental university training in physics and mathematics. This programme is particularly strong for careers in interpretation and processing of geophysical data, and research areas related to geological applications. Transfer to a Geology degree is possible up to the end of Year One. This degree is accredited by the Geological Society of London, satisfying the requirements of Fellowship and Chartered Geologist status. The programme covers core topics in geology, geophysics and physics, plus a choice of advanced modules in geophysics. Major features include training in practical geophysics, exploration geophysics (particularly seismology), planetary-scale geophysics and geophysical inverse theory. Fieldwork currently involves field areas in Wales, Spain and Tenerife. You will work within one of our research groups to undertake a significant geophysical research project in your final year. This provides excellent training in research methodology for an academic or industrial research career. This programme is available with a Year in China. The Year in China allows undergraduate students the opportunity to spend one year at our joint venture, Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University (XJTLU), following XJTLU's BA China Studies degree classes. XJTLU is a fully English-speaking university, located in Suzhou. If you wish to study this programme with a Year in China please put the option code YC in the Further Choices section of your UCAS application form.
