Reading Time: 6 minutes During the first week of September 2018 I was lucky enough to participate in a research project sponsored by the Higher Education Funding Council for England (HEFCE) that aimed to address and improve access to field trips for geoscience students with disabilities. This took place in Anglesey and was a unique trip that involved meeting 11 […]

Reading Time: 3 minutes I’m Emma and I’ll be one of the student bloggers for 17/18! I am a 4th year student studying Geology and Physical Geography from Ayrshire. I am extremely passionate about my course especially focusing in glaciology and fieldwork. I think that my course is such a fun course that is full of lots of interesting […]

Reading Time: 2 minutes By 2030, we will only have 1% of the earth rain forests remaining. We are on the brink of the earths 6th mass extinction. Earth’s population of wild vertebrates — all mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and fish — declined 58% from 1970 to 2012. These startling facts are all directly linked to human evoked climate […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes Since spring has officially sprung, I’ve been casting my mind back to warmer tides, tropical sunsets and the itch to get back out in the field putting science into action. Setting off Last April, along with my fellow third year Environmental Geoscience students, I stuffed snorkels, pH probes, hiking boots and dive slates all into […]

I am currently a second year MA geography student. The first […]

Reading Time: 4 minutes EMP2 and SWAP GeoSciences courses from First Year.

Reading Time: 3 minutes My first year second semester course where I learnt about mapping, geological strata and GIS. I had a field trip to the Lake District.

Reading Time: 5 minutes My blog on my geology field excursion to the Assynt Geo-Park with the University of Edinburgh, School of GeoSciences.

Reading Time: 3 minutes Overall: In first year I took this politics course as my outside subject. It taught me why I shouldn’t take any outside subjects. Don’t get me wrong the course itself was educational. It informed me of important world issues. However it had no relevance to my degree whatsoever. I realized that when I take a […]
