Student for a day

Are you interested in technology and geology and curious about the Applied Earth Sciences study programme? Would you like to explore your choice of study a little further and find out what it is like to attend lectures?

Come along to the Applied Earth Sciences 'Student for a day' to find out what life as a student here is like! A student will take you to various lectures and show you the faculty.
