Hi everyone,
Nice to see your thinking about applying for Earth sciences/Geology!
I'm currently in my 3rd year at Lancaster studying Physical Geography, but in my 1st year studied Earth and Environmental Science.
If you have any questions about what studying Geography/Earth sciences at uni is like, please feel free to ask!

Hello!
Lancaster has a wide range of degrees within Lancaster Environment Centre that suit all interests! From Ecology and Conservation, Physical Geography to Earth and Environmental Science! These all have varying modules but can easily pick between degrees. At Lancaster you can also take a minor in many other departments across the University, allowing you to minor in another of your interests! I'm happy to answer any further questions about the different degrees if you're interested!

Thanks,
Lucy (Lancaster Student Ambassador)

Hello!
Lancaster is a great potential option for Earth and Environmental Science! We are currently 13th in the league tables and have an environment centre dedicated to the study of the environment. We undertake many field trips so constantly hands on outdoors! Our lecturers are also researchers so our learning often comes straight from their own experiences, which other universities may not have! We are very proud of our rankings and I am happy to take anymore questions or queries about the course or university in general!

Although I was wondering, has anyone else received offers yet? It feels really weird getting them literally 1 week after I had my UCAS submitted
