This programme provides training in the principles and practice of geophysics with an emphasis on pure and practical physics. High level training is given in geophysics with supporting physics, providing classical physics training to second year university level, and including university training in geology and mathematics. The programme is particularly strong for careers in geophysical data analysis, and research areas related to global geophysics and planetary science. Transfer to a Physics degree is possible up to the end of Year One. This degree is recognised by the Institute of Physics. 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.
