Environmental/ Earch Sciences at uni - what to do?Watch
I have been considering earth or environmental sciences as that's something I'm really interested in although a lot of the courses seem to be very geology based, which frankly terrifies me, so I'd prefer something with more meteorology and oceanography in it. I think that my favourite is meteorology and would maybe like to become a meteorologist or climateologist but would prefer a broader degree.
So far I've been thinking of :
Bristol for Environmental geoscience as it has a nice mix
Lancaster for earth and environmental science
Leeds to do environmental science or meteorology and weather (as that's an area I'm particularly interested in)
I was am also considering Durham and Royal Holloway but am worried about too much geology.
So I was wondering if
1) anyone doing an evironmental or earth sciences course could give me any advice or tell me about their experience
2) what geology is really like and if it is interesting
3) Any advice on the particular universities
4) Prospects for meteorologists and whether a broader course is a safer option
Geology is definitely not my thing, but it doesn't consume a large proportion of your time in 1st year, and the lectures we've had in that area have been interesting. There are also a couple of trips to nearby beaches to examine various geological features - you can't NOT enjoy a sunny morning on the Norfolk coast!
Feel free to hit me up with any questions, I hope you find a course that you love!
