Geology and Geophysics
This programme draws on expertise from the School�s Earth and Planetary Science research institute, which studies the physical and chemical properties, origin and history of the Earth, and encompasses the major disciplines of geology, geochemistry, geodynamics, meteorology and geophysics. The Department brings together hitherto separate fields to understand the way in which the Earth�s subsurface works: from atoms to plates, and on timescales ranging from seconds to billions of years. There is special expertise in: mineralogy; igneous, metamorphic and experimental petrology; palaeontology; sandstone and carbonate diagenesis; tectonics; rock physics and chemistry; petroleum geoscience; seismic imaging; seismic sequence stratigraphy.
Applicants must have a 1st degree in an appropriate subject or relevant qualifications and experience; applicants whose 1st language is not English require: IELTS 6.5 (with at least 6.0 in each module); TOEFL internet-based test 92 (with at least 20 in each module); PTE 61 (with at least 56 in each of the communicative skills sections); or CPE grade C or CAE grade B.
