Hello,
I'm struggling to find universities in the UK that offer geophysics degrees. So far, I've only managed to find one at Leeds called 'Exploration Geophysics' and it covers my desire to focus on geophysics, but still contains a few geological elements just to keep my options open for the future.
If anyone has any good suggestions that would be very helpful, as postgraduate geophysics degrees are hard to come by at the moment.

Cheers,
Shawn

It may just be that the degree is too specialist. You may want to broaden your search a bit and look for unis that let you do optional modules in the subject. From your reading who is doing the cutting edge research in the field or has links with industry and where are they based?

Aberdeen offers an MSc in Geophysics, and as you know Leeds offers a couple of related degrees: Exploration Geophysics and Structural Geology with Geophysics. It might also be worth having a look at courses which contain elements of geophysics, such as Petroleum Geoscience, Engineering Geology or Environmental Geology. These will vary in content, however there will likely be at least some geophysics within them
