The Master of Geosciences enables you to gain in-depth and more specific knowledge as an extension of the one, obtained in your Bachelors degree.

Most universities offer Geosciences as a research or taught Masters course. A taught Masters comprises two taught semesters with an individual research project and subjects areas include: geology, geography, hydrogeology, geothermal, and mineralogy. A research Masters is designed for students who want to pursue future research and comprises itself of an year of research in one of these subject areas.

Entry requirements 

You should hold a Bachelors degree relevant to this subject and some universities also require a written personal statement which includes information on relevant knowledge skills. Depending on the specific subject area you want to study within the Geosciences, universities might also require proof of relevant work experience.
