Work Experience

We are able to offer work experience in the Earth, Ocean and Ecological Sciences Department at certain times of the year.  During a typical work experience placement a student may expect to see our work in the Oceanography Laboratory, in the Central Teaching Laboratory (CTL) as well as in the Geology and Geography laboratories.

Our work experience programme provides opportunities for students to work with different members of staff and to learn about:

  • rock strength testing
  • data handling
  • sample preparation and testing
  • using a Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM)
  • photomicroscopy

If you would like more information about how to arrange a work experience placement, please contact the School of Environmental Sciences by sending an email to:
