Postgraduate

Academic training enhanced by the high level of research activity in the department.

At the graduate-level teaching we offer academic training enhanced by the high level of research activity in the department. The research personnel and facilities that contributed to our excellent RAE outcome are routinely available for MSci and MSc student independent research projects.

Geophysical Hazards

Geophysical Hazards

Every year, natural disasters affect one in thirty people on Earth. Whether developing or industrialised, all nations are at risk, and the field of natural hazards is today one of the fastest growing areas of research in the Earth and Climate Sciences

Geoscience

Geoscience

The programme aims to integrate theoretical studies with essential practical skills in the Earth Sciences, both in the field and in the laboratory. It is a uniquely broad and flexible programme that suits student's aspirations, background and experience.

Natural Sciences

Natural Hazards & Natural Hazards for Insurers

A combination of climate change, increasing urbanization and wealth concentration, and mounting exposure to natural hazards, are progressively ramping up economic and insured losses and imposing growing pressure on insurers and reinsurers to seek ways of limiting exposure. 

Global Management of Natural Resources MSc

Global Management of Natural Resources

The programme will prepare the future leaders in the management of the natural resources value chain across the globe. The programme is transcontinental – offered by UCL and the University of South Australia. It prepare students for highly skilled, multi-disciplinary managerial roles in the natural resources sector.

Risk and Disaster Reduction

Risk and Disaster Reduction

Earth Sciences also admits students to courses run by the Institute for Risk and Disaster Reduction (IRDR). In this programmes, students explore the characterisation, quantification, management of risk and disasters, and their associated impacts, from a diverse range of scientific, socio-economic, political, environmental, ethical and cultural perspectives.

Planet Dynamics and Evolution

Planetary Science

The combination of taught courses, tutorials and project work allows prospective students to study a wide variety of topics related to planetary and space environments. The programme curriculum is drawn from a variety of academic departments within UCL, of which Earth Sciences is one of the contributors.
