Learn how to explore for Earth’s natural resources on this unique degree, the only undergraduate course in the UK to focus on specialist training in resource exploration.
On our Exploration Geology course, you will learn how the Earth’s processes have created the planet’s natural resources and how to explore for them to meet future demand. Exploration geologists will be central to delivering a low carbon future by helping meet the surging demand for metals, like copper and lithium, to supply the renewable energy industry that’s needed to tackle climate change.
As part of this course, you will have the opportunity to go on a unique 5-week summer placement where you will work as a junior geologist and experience what it is like to carry out exploration.
