Working & Learning at the University of Edinburgh – Student Ambassador, Geologist, Red Lichtie

The blog covers my life at the University of Edinburgh as a geology student, Student Ambassador and as a resident presiding in the Athens of the North. If you want to learn about the amazing geology of Scotland or explore the Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde nature of the city, this is the space to chart! I cover poetry, geology seminars, field trips, university life, tourism in Edinburgh and everything Scottish.

Hunor Deak in the Lab: Working in the geology laboratories of the University of Edinburgh

Hunor Deak in the rock lab

I had a lot of interesting lab work from melting rocks into lava to take geophysics measurements.

My course centered around the study of the Earth in the present and the processes that created it in the past. My course touched many scientific disciplines ranging from computer simulation to interplanetary physics. I studied palaeontology, climate science, meteorology, palaeobiology, Earth physics, mining geology, soil science, petrology, oceanography, geomorphology, GIS, planetology, geochemistry and geophysics.
