In the School of GeoSciences we explore the factors and forces that shape our world and environments in which we live.
We aim to understand the interaction between the Earth's geology, atmosphere, oceans, biosphere and human responses and roles in this complex interplay.
Our interdisciplinary research and teaching is built on strong core disciplines that include ecology, environmental sciences, geography, geology, geophysics, meteorology and oceanography.
With over 370 academics, researchers and research students, we are the largest grouping of GeoScientists in the UK.
The school includes:
Academic staff and their research teams are members of one of our three Research Instututes: Global Change, Geography and the Lived Environment, and Earth and Planetary Science.
Studying and researching in the School of GeoSciences.
The Geosciences Teaching Organisation (GTO) runs our undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes.
We have 11 Honours undergraduate programmes and 9 MSc programmes, offering a wide choice for all students.
PhD students and research masters students are members of one of three Graduate Schools, which provides a mutual support framework and an active events programme.
The Research Staff Organisation (RSO) is a network of postdoctoral staff and other interested researchers across the School of GeoSciences, that organises regular events.
Research Students and early-career researchers are supprted by the School's Research Training and Development section. This provides support and training for research students and has an active programme for the development and support of early-career researchers.
