Levels 3 and 4: Programme is based mainly on a number of optional courses, allowing students to specialise according to their interests within the discipline; certain core courses in geographical methods and research design are taken by all students who must also prepare and submit a dissertation on an approved topic. Geoscience: Level 1: Rock-forming processes; major geological features; earth history and evolution; rock, mineral and fossil identification; interpretation of geological maps and structures. Level 2: Students must follow a prescribed programme of courses from the following range: environmental geology; the description and classification of sedimentary, igneous and metamorphic rocks; classification and identification of minerals; sedimentology of major environments; systematic palaeontology. Level 3: Courses cover a wide range of geological topics from integrated themes such as earth structure and history to specialist and applied aspects such as petroleum geology, geochemistry, sedimentology, palaeontology and ores. Level 4: A range of advanced courses; either independent field mapping project or literature-based project.
