About the course
Natural disasters affect one in thirty people across the world each year. All nations are at risk and the field of natural hazards is one of the fastest-growing areas of research in the Earth and Climate Sciences. Our programme offers a unique focus on hazard forecasting and assessment and on how communities can use science to protect the vulnerable.
Our MSc in Geophysical Hazards investigates the processes that turn natural events into hazards, from volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and landslides to floods, tsunami and hurricanes. It provides an essential grounding for all fields of hazard study, from pure research to applications in the commercial and humanitarian sectors.
Normally a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Applicants whose qualifications are of a lower standard may be admitted if evidence of an adequate academic background and appropriate field experience can be shown.
