UCL Open Days


Earth Sciences

We’re fascinated with how our planet works - from materials at the atomic level to the forces that drive volcanoes. Our programmes allow you to build in-demand skills in a research-driven and highly stimulating learning environment.

We pursue world-class research into the processes at work on and within the Earth and planets. Our Geoscience MSc offers a broad range of study from palaeontology to deep earth geophysics, while our Geophysical Hazards MSc specialises in forecasting and mitigating hazards – from volcanic eruptions to earthquakes and floods. 
Both programmes open avenues to employment in higher research and in the commercial sector, including the insurance, environmental and geotechnical industries. Graduate students benefit from our lively and welcoming environment and world-class facilities. The department hosts the UCL Hazard Research Centre, Europe's leading multidisciplinary hazard research centre, and engages in extensive collaborative work with the Royal Institution and the Natural History Museum.
