Advice to applicants

Our common first year provides solid foundation for both our Earth and Planetary Sciences and Environmental Science degrees. Should your interests shift in your first year of study, you have the flexibility to transfer to other degrees in the department of Earth and Environmental Sciences in Year 1, subject to academic achievement.

Eligibility for continuation onto the fourth year of this MEvnSci programme is based on your marks at the end of Year 2 and/or Year 3. If you are not eligible you will be transferred to the BSc programme.

Interview requirements

Successful applicants will be invited to interview after submitting your application. Interviews will take place during Department Visit Days .

The interview helps us determine your suitability for, and commitment to, the course. We can also discuss any important contextual information, such as exceptional circumstances or personal barriers to learning, that we can consider when making an offer.

In your interview, simply be prepared to talk about the interests and activities you told us about in your UCAS statement, as well as the topics you're learning at school or college. You're welcome to bring a list of questions you may have about the course.

Deferrals

We will consider applicants who wish to defer on a case by case basis. Deferred entry is approved at the discretion of admissions staff and is granted for one year only. We normally guarantee a place in the current year should the applicant's gap year plans change.
