About This Course

This MSc is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and assessed by coursework and examinations. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring, quantifying and understanding the physical processes within the geological marine environment. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to decide how best to design and execute marine surveys, be they geophysical, sedimentological or geological, for the required purpose.

The MSc in Applied Marine Geoscience evolved from its predecessor, the Marine Geotechnics course which boasted a 30 year pedigree.

A series of modules have been designed to explain the processes that form and characterise a wide variety of sedimentary environments, from the littoral zone to the deep ocean. Those controls range from the dynamical, chemical, climatic to geological; all are inter-related. The student also gains knowledge and understanding of survey techniques in order to map these environments and thereby gain a better understanding of the processes that shape them. The final facet of the course involves an explanation of how these sedimentary materials react to imposed loads - how they behave geotechnically.

From past experience it is found that students on completion of the course will find employment in the offshore hydrocarbons industry, geophysical contract companies (both offshore and terrestrial), geotechnical engineering companies, river and harbour boards or government establishments. The course may also lead students to further academic research studies.

Course Content

What will you study on this course?

The aim of the course is to provide the world with people who:

understand the inter-relationships between the forces which shape the marine geological environment,
have mastered the practical and analytical techniques necessary to study those controls and survey the geological settings
can critically analyse their findings and present them at a standard and in a form required by end-users, be they commercial or academic.


Over the last 8 years, 78% of students have found geo-related employment and 18% have gone on to study for a PhD. Typically, graduates have taken up the following career paths:

Onshore or offshore site investigation contract or consultancy companies.
Government research agencies, e.g. BGS.
Higher Education and Research.

Вступительные требования

Для студентов, проживающих в Соединенных Штатах

UK PhD's are equal to USA PhD's. Each application is assessed on its own merits, however students will usually be expected to hold a Masters degree, and/or have relevant work experience. Previous exposure to research or thesis writing is highly desirable. Entry onto undergraduate and postgraduate programmes is dependent on academic qualifications and English Language Level. Applicants from USA need NOT provide additional evidence of English Language ability, if previous education was with English medium of instruction. Otherwise, an IELTS overall 6.0 with 5.5 in each component or equivalent is normally required (some courses may require a higher score).

Для иностранных студентов

Successful applicants normally hold, or expect to obtain, a 2(ii) undergraduate Honours degree in a physical, geophysical, engineering or other numerate subject area. Applicants from other science (BSc) subject areas (e.g. geography, geology, environmental science, marine science, or archaeology) or with relevant employment experience are encouraged to apply, provided that they can demonstrate high levels of motivation and experience in their Personal Statement and CV. IELTS: 6.0 (with no element below 5.5) is required. TOEFL 75 Overall.
