Top 10 UK Universities for Geology 2017

The Complete University Guide's 2017 subject league tables rank institutions by Entry Standards, Student Satisfaction, Research Quality, Research Intensity and Graduate Prospects.

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:


6. University College London

University College London has also slowly but surely begun climbing up the leader board. Despite a three year absence from the Top 10, UCL's Graduate Prospects have not suffered and remain amongst the best on the Geology League Table. UCL's Research Quality is equally impressive, which perhaps explains why their Entry Standards are also some of the highest of universities offering Geology degrees. Geology students at University College London can look forward to a number of perks with their degree, including at least 105 days of field classes in the UK and Europe.
