An exciting start to Second Year!

An exciting start to Second Year!

One of the things that drew me to study Geology are the plentiful opportunities it provides to travel. My start to second year began on the 9th September when we travelled to Almeria, Spain for a week. This blog will briefly document my trip. Unfortunately, I have far too much to say, but I’ll try and […]

Congratulations if you’ve just received your A2 exam results and you’re heading here, to the University of Leicester! You’re about to embark on a wonderful time, and if you’re doing your degree in Geology – welcome to the department!   I think my first thoughts on university were a very mixed bag of emotions. I […]

Life after MGeol hand in

… it does exist! Repeat: I can confirm that life continues after the slow walk to reception, arms laden with around 20,000 words (from 2 paper copies), two CDs and a project diary in order to hand the last 9 months of your life over the counter. The past week has been strangely empty without the constant […]
