Geology BSc(Hons): What our students say

Student profiles

Don't just take our word for it – here's what students say about what it's like to study at Kingston University.

Name: Aaron Kenyeh Abu
Course: Geology BSc(Hons), 2013–16

Kenyeh on a field tripChoosing to study geology at Kingston was one of the best decisions I've made. The course has taught me how to deal with every type of geological problem that I'm likely to encounter in my career! One particular aspect of the Geology BSc(Hons) course at Kingston that I enjoyed was the training I received in how to use highly sophisticated scientific instruments like a scanning electron microscope for my final-year research project. This training reflects a wider culture of using new and exciting ways to learn which helped me to understand even the most complex of geological problems.

 

Name: Stephany Ocampo Jimenez
Course: Geology BSc(Hons), 2013–16

Geology for me is a form of time travel, and I have been able to look at everything from 3 billion year old rock in NW Scotland to active tectonics in SE Spain. This course allowed me to spend a lot of time outdoors (in all weathers!) and enabled me to use my imagination to try and build a picture of how the landscape before me came to be. It is a fascinating subject that combines physics, chemistry and biology in the most exciting way possible.Stephany on a field trip

After finishing my degree in the summer of 2016 I was selected to work alongside some of the world's leading volcanologists on the island of Tenerife – a once in a lifetime experience that would not have been possible without my degree and the support of the geology staff at Kingston. I have no doubt that if I had do it all over again, I'd still choose to study geology at Kingston.

 

Name: Sascha Roest-Ellis
Course: Geology BSc(Hons), 2012–15

Sascha whilst on a field trip with her courseA keen interest in science, a love of the outdoors and an interest in understanding how Earth's processes interrelate: these are what drew me to geology. The geology course at Kingston allowed me to pursue all of these interests and more thanks to its accreditation by the Geological Society, its field trips, exceptional support and networking opportunities. Unlike many other three-year geology courses, Kingston enabled me to undertake both mapping and dissertation projects that have given me a big advantage over rival applicants at interviews for further education and employment.

After graduating from Kingston, I went on to study for a fully industry sponsored MSc in Petroleum Geoscience at Royal Holloway, University of London. I'm now about to start a PhD at the University of Oxford. The teaching and support provided by the department at Kingston continues to help me gain places on highly competitive programmes.
