    And I'm another Geologist!

    Geology MSci
    A*AA

    Loved the department, the course looks great. The departments record is great.

    Had to choose between Imperial and Oxford which was hard but in the end the course content and free field trips won me over.

    The handwritten note was also a great touch.

    See you all in October!!
    Geology and Geophysics MSci

    Finally firmed. I had to choose between Imperial and Oxford as well! Hardest decision ever!

    Imperial had to win,

    Really loved the staff.
    Potential to go abroad.
    Location / living in London!
    Seemed more modern and forward thinking.
    Bigger focus on industry links.
    Scholarships and free field work ( Rio Tinto etc.)
    Gym. Hyde park.
    Same offer as Oxford , but a little bit of wiggle room suggested in the offer letter.

    Loads of reasons!
