III Earth Sciences - fourth year

Having built up the basics over the past three years, the focus now shifts to the application of those principles, and a more critical, interrogative and creative approach to understanding how the planet works. Increasingly, the important insights in Earth Sciences turn up in the territory between the conventional disciplines, and the course is designed to encourage a breadth of research-level experience, even as you focus on your own research project. By the end of the course you will be in a position to take on advanced academic research – or any other occupation requiring analytical ability, dexterity and experience.
