We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
At the School of GeoSciences we examine the interactions between the Earth’s geology, atmosphere, oceans and life, as well as considering our own role and impact on our planet.
The effect of these complex relationships is vitally important to our world’s future, which means the skills and knowledge you will develop as a postgraduate student here will put you in an exceptional position to help make that future better. Spanning the entire spectrum of the geosciences field, we offer opportunities that are increasingly interdisciplinary and international in focus.
We are the largest geoscience research group in the UK, with around 400 academics and researchers. The quality of our research is second to none: we were ranked top in the UK for research power in the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. We were also identified as having the greatest concentration of ‘world-leading’ and ‘internationally excellent’ researchers in the UK. We offer dedicated expertise across our core teaching areas of ecology, environmental sciences, geography, geology, geophysics, meteorology and oceanography.
