Sana Shah, Third Year Student
I chose to study at Keele University due to its diverse programme and I was very intrigued by some of the first year modules. Being able to learn any language along with my degree was also another reason.
The different aspects of geoscience are covered in different ways such as lectures, fieldwork and practical sessions, and the main strength of the course is how supportive the lecturers are in the department.
There are multiple seminars from guest speakers who are potential employers for geologists. GGE also has multiple opportunities for internships, gaining first-hand industrial experience, and there is also the Student Voice programme – where as a student representative for Geology I talk to students about the course and represent their opinions to staff.
I am hoping to become an engineering geologist or hydrogeologist in the future, and I’m currently studying the ‘Hydrological and Engineering Geology’ module, which is helping me to pick between doing a hydrology masters or an engineering geology masters.
