Understanding how the Earth works, the forces that shape it and how we can use its resources in a sustainable way is crucial to the future of our planet.
Hull has an excellent reputation for teaching Earth Sciences. We’re #1 in the UK for overall satisfaction on this degree, according to the National Student Survey 2020.¹
From day one, you’ll be trained to become a sustainably-minded geoscientist. This is the first Earth Sciences programme in the UK to launch a Sustainability Award. Your learning is grounded in helping to secure the future of our planet.
Learning by doing is an important part of the course. Whether you’re getting your hands dirty in the labs, or treading the soil in Spain, Cyprus or the Isle of Skye. And the best bit is, all your core field trip costs are included in your tuition fees.
You’ll be highly sought after by employers. It’s no coincidence that 95.9% of our students go on to employment or further study six months after graduating.²
Once you graduate, you’ll be qualified to pursue geological careers in environmental consulting, remediation, renewable energies, exploration geology, surveying and engineering.
Or you can put the transferable practical, research and numerical skills you’ll develop to good use in a wholly different way: teaching, finance, data analysis, and more.
And because your degree is accredited by the Geological Society, you’ll be on a fast-track route to becoming a Chartered Geologist.
Our academics are ranked #3 in the UK for research impact.³
As we speak, they’re out studying the latest solutions to climate change, geological hazards, mass extinctions and volcanism. And they bring all this knowledge back to you through research-led teaching.
