We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Geophysics is the remote study of the Earth's interior through physical techniques – principally seismology, but also applying gravity, magnetic, electrical and electromagnetic methods.
It is a key element of oil, gas and mineral exploration; environmental, cryosphere, and archaeological assessment; and engineering site investigation. Our Exploration Geophysics MSc prepares you to embark on a career in any of these industrial or academic sectors.
You will also undertake a four-month individual project, mostly in association with an external company or institute, and often in their offices on placements or subsidised internships.
