    Good luck with your geology at Exeter! It is a shame really, I wanted to apply to Exeter for Geology but was put off due to the fact that it was based at the Cornwall Campus.

    I was origionally interested in Hydrogeology and geotechnics side of geology but mining geology seems interesting also after looking into it and will probably end up in that sector if I go to Exeter due to strong links but hopefully should be able to go into others branches of geology also such as hydrogeology all being well still not 100% sure if I want to do mining engineering over geology both courses seem so full and exciting :confused: going to have decide in first term after luckily being given a place from both and having mining engineering as my insurance choise

    Nice choices! to be honest I did look at mining engineering from the brochure and also the syllabus from the website and decided that there seems alot more breadth/choice in the applied geology course, its very diverse, covering a good entry route towards masters degrees or many geology careers straight from undergrad but yet mining engineering will be more practical based and regular trip to the camborne mines. The thing that did catch me about the mining was the use of explosives in the mines, now that would be pretty damn cool!

    I hope to focus on the technical aspects in things like surveying for mapping areas, attention to detail for scaling measurements, materials examination and their locations, tectonic plates and so much more.. it will be quite an interesting 3 years though with the student lifestyle next to the coast to go with it that's for sure!
