MSc degrees offered
MSc Exploration Geology
Each year candidates for the MSc in Exploration Geology complete one 4 week module of coursework focussed on ore deposits and mineralisation processes with an associated 2 week field exercise, and one 4 week coursework module devoted to exploration techniques and methods of deposit evaluation and development. In addition to successful completion of the 4 coursework modules, candidates need to complete a small thesis to complete the degree. Coursework modules are presented by experts in the field with in-house expertise supplemented by experts from industry and academia.
Entry requirements for the MSc (Expl. Geol.) are a BSc (Hons) in geology, or equivalent standard 4 year geology degree, along with a minimum of two years (4 years preferred) of post-graduation work experience.
MSc Economic Geology
The Programme also offers the more research-oriented MSc (Econ. Geol.) which can be entirely thesis-based or include coursework modules appropriate to the research topic (maximum of 2) from the MSc Exp. Geol. Programme on either a full-time or part-time basis. Entrance requirements are an upper second class Honours level degree – there is no work experience requirement.
