Earth Sciences - Introduction


The Earth Sciences are concerned with the study of the Earth, its origin, structure, composition and history. A wide range of ideas from many scientific disciplines including chemistry, physics and biology are integrated and applied to complex problems including the environment in which we live, the history of life itself, and the nature of the processed which shape the planet.

In addition to an academic understanding of Earth structure, history and mechanisms, geoscientists work to provide solutions for problems in water supply, energy supply and conservation, construction and pollution control.

There are two streams offered by the Earth Sciences Department:

Providing students take at least two Science-based subjects at A level or equivalent, there are no specific subject requirements for Earth Sciences Streams. More information on optional courses may be found on the Earth Sciences website
