We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Geomorphology offer advanced study of the processes which determine the topography of the Earth’s crust.
Related subjects include Physical Geography. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject such as Geography or Geology
Techniques in geomorphology help professionals to understand landform history and dynamics, and the physical, chemical and biological processes operating at or near the Earth's surface which determine their features. This could include for example glacial processes, or tectonic shifts.
Tracking these features over time allows Geomorphologists to predict future changes. Through a combination of field observations, physical experiments and numerical modelling, you will learn to do the same.
Training typically includes techniques in geomatics, such as remote sensing and GIS (geographical information systems). These are then interpreted through geovisualisation methods, including cartography to represent contour lines, hypsometric tints, and relief shading. Techniques in bathymetry (measuring the depth of lake or ocean floors) are also a component of most courses.
Careers may include roles in urban planning including deep foundation engineering, disaster planning, conservation, and environmental monitoring.

This course will examine the interactions between climate, hydrology, geomorphology, ecology, biogeochemical cycling, water and habitat quality and biodiversity.
Our MPhil/PhD research degree programme offers you. Wide variety of research interests. The Institute of Science and the Environment has a strong mix of academics with a high degree of professional and personal experience, enabling you to get the most out of your programme.
This programme is delivered in close collaboration with our advisory board of representatives from the water industry, and provides fundamental and applied training in the science and management of freshwater environments.
This MSc is a uniquely broad and flexible programme that suits students' aspirations, background and experience. UCL Earth Sciences has strengths in geophysics, geochemistry, palaeobiology, mineral physics, geodynamics, geohazards, climate science, environmental geosciences and policy, and other areas.
The International MA Program in Maritime Civilizations offers students an exceptional opportunity to explore the history, archaeology, and fabric of maritime societies, as well as the natural environment in which they developed and the anthropogenic environments in which they currently exist.
Researchers can specialise in geography, geographical information science, environmental studies, development studies, international childhood studies, or community, youth and voluntary sector studies.
Given the wider development of Citizen GIS and an increased public awareness and knowledge of the power and value of spatial data, vastly increased amounts of such data from different sources are now available to researchers.
This unique programme is aimed at training graduates from a range of scientific disciplines who wish to pursue a research career in cold-regions science, notably within the disciplines of glaciology, glacial geomorphology, polar climatology/ oceanography, environmental science, polar biogeochemical processes, or their intersections.
Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and Remote Sensing are considered essential tools to spatially explore, analyse, visualise and disseminate data; and these skills are increasingly highly sought after in the workplace.
If you're fascinated by the natural and man-made hazards that affect our planet, then the MSc Geological and Environmental Hazards degree course will take your understanding of the challenges ahead to the next level.
Ready to develop and implement engineering techniques, unpack geological structures and processes, and take your studies to postgraduate level? Our MSc Engineering Geology degree course is for you.
Our Engineering Geology MSc provides concentrated one-year training in engineering geology and related geotechnical subjects to prepare you for professional practice in engineering geology and geotechnical engineering.
