We recommend that you study the modules in the order listed below. You must have successfully completed Earth science: a systems approach (S808) before studying the project module, which we expect you to take as the final module for this qualification.
To gain this qualification, you need 180 credits as follows:
30 credits from the following optional modules:
• Environmental monitoring and protection (T868) • Making environmental decisions (T891)
150 credits from the following compulsory modules:
• Developing research skills in science (S825) • Earth science: a systems approach (S808) • MSc project module (S810)
The modules quoted in this description are currently available for study. However, as we review the curriculum on a regular basis, the exact selection may change over time.
If you’ve successfully completed some relevant postgraduate study elsewhere, you might be able to count it towards this qualification, reducing the number of modules you need to study. Please note that credit transfer will not be given for the MSc project module (S810). You should apply for credit transfer as soon as possible, before you register for your first module.
If you do not have a degree in Earth science/Geology (or similar) then you are required to take additional undergraduate modules before starting this MSc. If you have other study or experience that you believe equips you to take this qualification you can still apply, but you must supply evidence of that study or experience. You will also need good computing skills and a level of proficiency in the English language that is adequate for study at postgraduate level. Please visit our website for more information on entry requirements.
