UCL (University College London)
This course offers a wide programme of study related to the physics of planetary and space environments, including planetary interiors, atmospheres and magnetospheres; the impact of the space environment on human physiology; and research project work which provides potential opportunity to work with established planetary researchers at UCL, some of whom are involved in active or planned space missions.
A minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a relevant discipline, preferably with substantial physics content, from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.
Core modules (3 from): Deep Earth and planetary modelling; Earth and planetary materials; planetary atmospheres; solar physics; space plasma and magnetospheric physics. Options: Any remaining core module; Earth and planetary system science; melting and volcanism; astronomical spectroscopy; physics of the Earth; space medicine and extreme environment physiology.
The programme is delivered through a combination of lectures, practical classes, computer-based teaching, fieldwork, and tutorials. Student performance is assessed through coursework and written examination. The research project is assessed by literature survey, oral presentation and the dissertation.
