As the old saying goes, Geology rocks! Geology is the science of solid Earth and the rocks of which it is composed. The study of Geology helps us to understand, amongst many other things, tectonic plates. Developing our knowledge of tectonic plates gives us a greater understanding of volcanoes and earthquakes, making them easier to predict and protect ourselves against. As such, Geologists can quite literally save lives, and with that in mind, here are our Top 10 UK Universities for Geology 2017:
