Greene’s Geoscience Diploma
Available at Greene’s in Oxford and Estoril (Portugal) the Geoscience Diploma is a pathway to university entrance and beyond
Geoscience, or Earth Science, is the scientific study of our planet, including its formation, its structure and its evolution.
Every aspect of modern life has a Geoscience connection, from building materials for the houses we live in to fuel for the cars we drive. Understanding climate change and considering options for the safe storage of nuclear waste are just two of today’s pressing problems that require a knowledge of Geoscience. It is truly a global science and includes, among many others, aspects of disciplines such as Biology, Geography, Environmental Science, Physics, Chemistry, Engineering, Resource Management and Government Policy.
Studying Geoscience will develop your understanding of how the process of long-term climate change has affected our Earth – shaping the world we live in and enabling us to anticipate future changes as this process accelerates. You will explore how current human activity is having an impact on our planet as well as how to manage this activity.
During the Greene’s Geoscience Diploma course you will:
- work with outstanding tutors and world-class lecturers;
- develop your interest in, and enthusiasm for, understanding the earth;
- learn from the geological past, to understand better how to consider future resource use;
- appreciate the finite nature of the earth’s resources and the need for geo-conservation;
- benefit from exceptional fieldwork experience in the U.K., Portugal (the Azores) and the Ophiolite sequence in Oman;
- appreciate how Geoscience can inform governments to structure policies and make decisions regarding use of the earth’s resources; and
- develop the critical skills needed to succeed at university and in your career.
