About Geophysics (International) at Faculty of Environment, University of Leeds

Our Geophysics (International) MGeophys, BSc is a four-year Integrated Masters degree with a year spent in New Zealand, Singapore Canada or the USA, experiencing geological settings that don't exist in the UK. It draws on the expertise and active research of one of the UK's largest teams of academic geophysicists.

Geophysics is the application of physics to understand processes such as the generation of Earth's magnetic field, motion of Earth's tectonic plates, and the movement and structure of the oceans and atmosphere.

It provides the tools to look inside the Earth in order to find resources, monitor natural hazards and track movement of the Earth's surface.

During your degree you'll study all aspects of geophysics with a focus on the solid Earth, whilst gaining strong analytical, computational and numerical skills, which are highly valued by geophysics companies, research institutions, and financial and governmental departments.

There's a strong emphasis on applying your knowledge in the real world through practical hands-on learning and field trips, in national and international destinations.
