Choosing what you want to do after you finish school can be difficult.
Our FREE webinar is designed to show you a variety of degrees; some of which you may not have heard of before.
We are talking about the field of geoscience.
Geosciences is a field that is at the forefront of understanding and fighting climate change; predicting natural disasters; cleaning up nuclear and chemical pollutants; discovering and managing resources that enable us to build our green future and the list goes on.
Geosciences is a well-rounded subject, moulding you into a well-rounded individual that understands how the Earth works as a whole.
The demand for graduates with a wide range of skills and knowledge is rising, and as such geoscience graduates are highly sought after. With such a diverse background you can work for almost any industry and many of us go on to become great scientists, leaders and CEOs.
But wait there is more!
Your work environment will be dynamic while studying geosciences: you will be in the lab, wearing a lab coat pouring chemicals into each other; out in the field working in exciting locations; on the computer creating simulations and giving presentations.
Should you attend?
We look forward to including students from all background and all parts of the country. If you’re a student considering any number of these subjects: Chemistry, Physics, Biology, Maths, Informatics or Geography at University, you should absolutely think coming to our session. If you are a student who wants to add to their UCAS application form or CV, you should also come.
As we move away from our global addiction to fossil fuels, we need more Geoscientists paving the way for a greener future. That is why we’ve created a website that allows you to explore each area of geoscience, in your own time. We designed the site so that you discover each area based on your interests linking it up to your potential career path.
For those that like Chemistry, the Outdoors and Biology, you may be interested in the field of Oceanography, Geochemistry or Environmental Geoscience. Therefore, you will have to travel to remote parts of the world like Tahiti to study the relationship between corals, ocean acidity and carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
“Although I found Chemistry, Biology, Physics, Art, Geography, Maths, Sociology and Informatics interesting, I never wanted to dedicate myself to just one of these, for four years. When I realised how many different disciplines where being utilised to understand everything from our earth to our universe I was hooked and I never looked back.” -Leonluca Klein
