Module aims

The Summer Vacation Project allows the student to demonstrate their ability to undertake independent, or semi-independent project work involving the collection, analysis and presentation of geological data (or equivalent data from a discipline that overlaps with applied geology). Students generally undertake data collection for a minimum of 28 days during the summer vacation as part of: (1) a geological mapping exercise, (2) a field and/or laboratory-based investigation, or (3) a placement with an appropriate geoscience, environmental, engineering or minerals industry company/organisation. The project should normally allow students to develop the knowledge and skills introduced during one or more of the modules taken at Levels 1 and 2.
