Geological Oceanography at Bangor University - UCAS

Course summary

This degree focuses on the study of marine sediments within an Earth system science context. It is concerned with sedimentary processes (the origin, transport and deposition of particles in the marine environment), and with marine sediments and rocks, in particular those formed in the past 2 million year, but also further back in time. Geological Oceanographers are required to tackle issues such as climate and sea-level change, coastal erosion, marine pollution, waterway siltation and offshore engineering related to cable/pipelines routes, renewable energy infrastructure and oil and gas exploration. We are one of the largest university centres teaching marine sciences in the UK and among the biggest in Europe. The geologists on our staff have expertise in the relevant subject areas and we have strong links with the offshore and hydrocarbon industry. We are unique in the UK in offering the sedimentology / geophysics / geotechnics combination of subject areas – and we are very well recognised in the industry for providing high quality employees to the offshore sector. ‘Placement Year’ and 'International Experience Year’ options are available for this course. You will have the opportunity to fully consider these options when you have started your course at Bangor and can make an application for a transfer onto such a pathway at the appropriate time. You can find more information about these options on our website and if you have any questions, please get in touch. If you don’t have the required qualifications for this degree-level course or are looking to re-enter education after time away from study, then a Foundation Year Programme might be the right choice for you.
