MSc in Glaciology at Aberystwyth University, UK.

Tom Holt

Dear colleagues,


We are now accepting applications for our MSc in Glaciology at Aberystwyth University for a September 2017 start. Please forward this on to any students who may be interested or may benefit from a postgraduate course in Glaciology.


The MSc is a full-time programme taught over a 13-month period, and is supported by world-leading researchers and award-winning lecturers in the Centre for Glaciology, Department of Geography and Earth Sciences. The Centre for Glaciology has recently celebrated its 20th anniversary, and DGES itself celebrates its centenary in 2017-18. Over the last 100 years we have created one of the largest, most vibrant, and most experienced Geography departments in the UK.


The MSc in Glaciology begins with a week-long trip to the European Alps in early September 2017, and throughout the MSc, students are exposed to diverse mix of critical themes in glaciology, including: glacier hydrology and glacier-surface characteristics; glacier dynamics; structural glaciology; microbiology; numerical modelling and empirical data collection; application of remote sensing and GIS in glaciology; aspects of glacial geology, sedimentology and geomorphology, and; ice-mass response to environmental change.


The course is taught through a combination of fieldtrips, seminars, workshops, laboratory classes and computer-based practicals, and culminates in an independent research project undertaken between May and September 2018.
