Geophysical Sciences degrees abroad

Geophysical scientists use physical laws to understand the Earth’s structure and processes.

After developing a solid understanding of earth sciences, physics, mathematics, and computing, you’ll explore how the earth came to be. You’ll analyze what it’s made of, how it works, and what this means for its inhabitants.

Studying abroad is an invaluable opportunity to see different geophysical principles, formations, and behaviors in action. From volcanoes to earthquakes, and climates to oceans, you’ll appreciate the diversity of the Earth’s systems and functions.

Geophysical Sciences program structure

Most bachelor’s degrees in geophysical sciences are studied full-time over three years. However, it’s possible to convert your BSc into a four-year course by taking an industrial placement year. This is an unbeatable way to gain hands-on experience and try out career options.

If you want to gain a deeper understanding of the field, you can take advantage of the graduate programs on offer. MSc courses generally take between one and two years, while PhD programs can last anywhere from four to seven years.

Lectures, workshops, seminars, laboratories, and field trips will help you develop a sound theoretical and practical understanding of geophysical science. Your progress will be assessed through a mixture of exams, essays, presentations, and fieldwork.

Thanks to the wide variety of modules on offer, it’s easy to tailor your degree to reflect your interests. However, here are some of the core topics you’ll likely cover:

  • Understanding the Earth’s structure
  • Earth materials, behaviors, and properties
  • Understanding geological processes
  • Earth and ocean systems
  • Hydrocarbon and mineral exploration
  • Monitoring natural hazards
  • Geofluids - water, ice, magma, and hydrocarbons
  • Gathering, analyzing, and interpreting geophysical data
