Designed to bridge the gap between our BSc Geology and Petroleum Geography programme and higher degrees, be they a taught masters course or a PhD. This course also enhances employment prospects by providing hands-on access to technical data and software, much of it arising directly from industry.
You apply for this MGeol as any other UG course, through UCAS (for UK students). If you are already an Aberdeen student, you can transfer on to MGeol if you are following an appropriate BSc (e.g. Geology and Petroleum Geology). Throughout the UK the MGeol is now the most usual route taken by Earth Scientists into a PhD and satisfies European expectations of a pre-PhD university education (opening greater opportunities for higher study abroad). However, the generic training in problem-solving and teamwork are also especially valued by non-Earth Science employers, making the MGeol a good choice for students considering broader career paths. It is also widely used as a bridge into taught vocational masters courses.
