To save the planet we need to understand the planet.
Study Earth Science at university.
Earth Science is the study of the solid Earth, how it works, and its history since formation 4.6 billion years ago. Earth Science graduates use their knowledge of how the Earth works in many different ways to help create a sustainable future of us all.
University Geoscience UK is a national organisation that represents all Earth Science departments in the UK.
Our purpose is to promote discussion and exchange of information between Earth Science departments, and to provide a single point of contact to those university departments. These particular pages are intended to provide information to people who are thinking about what to study at university and want to know more about what Earth Science is and why it is important.
