Course summary

Our Earth’s resources are limited, and factors including population expansion, global industrialisation and agriculture have stretched their ability to provide for our needs. Environmental geoscientists study the environmental and geological factors that have a direct impact on human existence, meaning that they’re the people we call on to solve these profound and far-reaching issues. Study Environmental Geoscience with an International Year at Royal Holloway, University of London and you’ll equip yourself with the skills and knowledge you need to progress to further postgraduate education or a rewarding scientific or technical career. Your final year will be spent studying abroad in a partner university in Canada, the United States, Australia or New Zealand, giving you the chance to experience a new culture, develop key skills and study unique geological and environmental conditions in situ. You’ll study in a prestigious department consistently ranked among the UK’s top 10 (The Complete University Guide and The Times Good University Guide 2018), and graduate with a Masters degree in a field offering many exciting graduate career opportunities. Our extensive range of state-of-the-art facilities gives you access to world-leading laboratories for geochemical analysis, sedimentology and palaeontology, giving you the chance to contribute to our leading research culture.

Additional fee information

The tuition fee for UK undergraduates is controlled by Government regulations, and for those starting a degree in the academic year 2022/23, is £9,250 for that year. The fee for UK undergraduates starting in 2023/24 has not yet been confirmed. The UK Government has confirmed that EU nationals are no longer eligible to pay the same fees as UK students, nor be eligible for funding from the Student Loans Company (https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/student-loans-company). This means you will be classified as an international student. At Royal Holloway, we wish to support those students affected by this change in status through this transition. For eligible EU students starting their course with us in September 2023, we will award a fee reduction scholarship equivalent to 30% of the difference between the UK and international fee for your course. This will apply for the duration of your course. Fees for international students may increase year-on-year in line with the rate of inflation. The policy at Royal Holloway is that any increases in fees will not exceed 5% for continuing students. For further information see fees and funding (https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/studying-here/fees-and-funding/) and our terms and conditions (https://www.royalholloway.ac.uk/studying-here/applying/admissions-policy-and-procedures/). Other essential costs: These estimated costs relate to studying this particular degree programme at Royal Holloway. Costs, such as accommodation, food, books and other learning materials and printing etc., have not been included.
