Course summary

Overview

Our School of Earth and Environmental Sciences' postgraduate research degrees are based on independent full-time research work, with an academic supervisor to guide you in discovering new and exciting areas. Underpinned by substantial external funding, the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences vibrant research environment provides our PhD and MPhil students with opportunities to work with world experts and use high-quality research equipment. Our three broad research centres bring together expertise across the School to work on significant projects. Each centre is responsible for addressing key research themes across Earth and Environmental Sciences. Centre for Solid Earth and Natural Resources deals with the composition and dynamic evolution of the Earth's mantle and crust, including its mineral and petroleum resources. Centre for Geobiology and Geochemistry focuses on the Earth's surface, including in and under its oceans, where life has evolved and profoundly affected environments over billions of years. Centre for Resilience and Environmental Change investigate the causes and consequences of changes in the Earth system, in the ocean, atmosphere and on land, from the geological past into the present and future. Our graduates go on to undertake a wide variety of employment routes. Some take up post-doctoral positions in the UK and overseas, whilst others take up positions in the oil and minerals industries throughout many parts of the world.
