MSci Environmental Geoscience with Study Abroad

University of Bristol

Join a University ranked #2 in the UK for 'Earth systems and environmental sciences' research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning (UK top ten for Geology, which includes Earth Sciences, Complete University Guide 2023).

Examine the interactions between the geology, biology, chemistry and physics of Earth’s surface, oceans and atmosphere and gain a deep understanding of Earth’s environment and how it can be influenced by human activities.

Learn with experts whose research feeds directly into your studies at the cutting edge of scientific developments. Recent options have included Soils and the Critical Zone, Environmental Impact Assessments, Oceans and Climates, and Environmental Radioactivity. By your final year you’ll be conducting your own independent research and exploring the questions that matter most to you.

Your third year is spent abroad, studying units comparable to those offered at Bristol. Recently, students have been to North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.

MSci courses allow you to invest in your skills development by studying more advanced material in greater depth during the additional year, preparing you for further research or boosting your career opportunities.

You will gain plenty of hands-on experience, with over 40 days of fieldwork both in the UK and overseas, the cost of which is included in your tuition fee. Field trips are a huge part of why our school community is so close-knit, giving you the chance to get to know your course mates and key staff while honing your practical skills.

Think Big bursaries of £3,000 are available to support first-year international undergraduate students in this subject area.
