Programme description

Our research is focused on studies into processes controlling land- and sea-scape evolution, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, sedimentary basin tectonics, clastic and carbonate sedimentology and environmental change. We have developed novel digital outcrop studies and their application to reservoir modelling.

The group has dedicated state-of-the-art facilities for digital outcrop data collection and analysis (including terrestrial laser scanning) and for the interpretation, modelling and visualisation of 3D seismic data. We also have dedicated facilities for numerical modelling, in addition to central University HPC facilities.

The group runs several major industrial consortia including the rifts Analogues project (TRAP) and the North Africa Research Group (NARG)

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2014, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MSc by Research (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): Band 1 £6,200, Band 2 £8,850, Band 3 £12,550
    International students (per annum): Band 1 £18,000, Band 2 £18,450, Band 3 £22,050

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees. Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
