Student Profiles

Alistair Swan

Graduated in 2020

"When applying for the course I had high expectations for what was to be expected of the course, and of the standard of teaching. However, the course far exceeded my expectations.

The standard of teaching is world-class, the organisation of teaching is seamless, and the incorporation of new technology into the teaching means that this course is still at the forefront of the current academic teaching."

Kirsty Lewis

Graduated in 2020

"Courses covered in the masters gave the base-level skills and knowledge required to enter the industry in a geoscience role.

The industry mentors and various talks throughout the masters also gave great insight into the industry and allowed for good networking opportunities. The thesis project enabled me to fine-tune my researching skills and improve on my academic writing."
