University Subject Tables 2017
Geology is the science of solid Earth and the rocks of which it is composed. Studying the subject helps us to understand, amongst many other things, tectonic plates, which in turn gives us a greater understanding of volcanoes and earthquakes, making them easier to predict and protect ourselves against. Use our Geology subject table to find your perfect university, and learn why Geology really does rock.

Geology — East of England
|Rank||University Name||Next Steps|
Having never placed lower than second in the Top 10 UK Universities for Geology, this year breaks the University of Cambridge 's seven-year streak at the top of the Geology League Table. As one would expect with Cambridge, their Entry Standards are far higher than any other university offering Geology degrees. Cambridge also holds an impressive score for Student Satisfaction – a rarity among the higher performing universities. The success doesn't stop there, as Cambridge has the joint-second highest Research Quality and fourth highest Graduate Prospects on the Geology League Table. The University of Cambridge is clearly passionate about Geology, and students will have the opportunity to go on heavily subsidised field trips across the UK and Europe.
