All of our Geology degrees will provide you with the knowledge, technical and transferable skills required to achieve your professional goals. You’ll also benefit from a dedicated Careers Tutor with many years’ experience as an industry geologist.
Our annual Geology Careers Day is attended by a wide range of companies from across the geoscience sector. More than 50 companies are actively involved with Geology at Leicester, from funding major research projects to work experience opportunities.
Many of our graduates work as geoscientists involved in discovering, extracting and developing energy, mineral and water resources. Leicester graduates are also employed in the environmental sector, addressing issues of climate change, sustainability, waste management, environmental monitoring and remediation.
Some graduates have moved directly into other professions (e.g. teaching, banking, the media, management and the police). And around a quarter of our graduates go on to do further study for a Masters or a PhD.
