Course summary

You will join the University of Edinburgh’s Global Change Research Institute, a grouping of approximately 200 researchers engaging with diverse challenges of international significance.

Research programmes

Research programmes in Global Change typically involve fieldwork, remote sensing, laboratory experimentation and analysis, theory, modelling and stakeholder engagement. Our research extends throughout the world, over all seven continents, from poles to equator, from the deep Earth to the upper atmosphere.

Research community

Within the institute, we exchange knowledge regularly in weekly seminar programmes and smaller research group discussions, and the institute also comes together in twice-yearly Global Change Symposia where students, staff and stakeholders discuss our latest developments and outline new grand challenges.

Training and support

As a postgraduate research student at Edinburgh, you have access to an exceptionally wide range of training courses offered by the many interdisciplinary researchers across the School of GeoSciences, and more broadly across the university.


You will receive guidance both from your supervisory team and the postgraduate research office on appropriate training specific to your research needs and requirements. Additionally, an academic advisor, separate from your direct supervisory team, is always available to help support you and track your progress and welfare throughout your research degree.

Professional development

Multiple professional development opportunities are available to you throughout your studies, including support to publish your research and present to peers at internal workshops and national/international conferences, and opportunities and training to teach on the School’s undergraduate programmes in Earth Sciences, Ecological & Environmental Sciences, and Geography.
