MSci Geoscience with International Studies

The MSci in Geoscience with a year of International Study is a prestigious degree programme offering talented students the opportunity to realise their full academic and personal potential. During their first two years of study, in addition to completing an academic programme shared in common the MSci Geoscience degree, students undertake a series of seminars and independent tutorials to extend their academic boundaries and prepare them for the experience of international academic exchange. Placement in a partner Institution in the USA, Canada, Australia or New Zealand depends on academic progress and is competitive. Places at chosen Institutions are not, therefore, guaranteed.
