We provide a friendly, dynamic and supportive environment in which to learn about the evolution of our planet from geoscientists at the forefront of their field. Our teaching is led by our research and our staff are recognised internationally for their expertise.

We are part of the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment.


We offer outreach activities for local schools. Learn about our lectures for sixth form students, or book a visit from one of our Ambassadors.
