Study Geology online at your own pace with expert support

Go to Learning Zone index page
  • We offer a range of Geology courses aimed at adults and students. Courses are designed to encourage you to find out more about aspects of Earth science.

  • The courses are supported by a forum intended to encourage lively dailogue with others undertaking the same course.

  • You can undertake the online course at your own pace but have the ongoing support of a tutor with comprehsive knowledge and experience of geology.

  • If you are a complete novice and want to know more about geology we recommend our course “Steps towards the rockface” – it’s been tailored to suit your needs.

  • The online courses follow the same syllabus as our face to face courses, the online versions are intended for those unable to join the face to face courses due to location or your availability to attend.

During Spring 2017 we are running three different online courses, all begin on January 9th.

How the Earth works
We continue to see widespread volcanic eruptions and earthquakes affecting many parts of the Earth, But why, after 4.6 billion years of Earth history does this still happen? In short, how does the Earth work? This course will try to get at some of the answers to these and many other questions. We’ll be looking at earth materials, the minerals and the rocks and outlining some of the key facts about geological time and how Earth processes act. By the end of the course you should be much more familiar with the workings of planet Earth and maybe a little less surprised when something dramatic happens!

This course runs for 10-weeks and is suitable for adults who already have a grasp of the basics of geology, but want to learn more.
Cost £85.00 by email/Moodle or £100.00 by post.

Steps towards the Rockface
Our popular introductory course for anyone wanting an overview of geology at entry level. The course covers all major aspects of rocks, minerals and fossils, along with information about how the Earth works, geological history and Earth resources.

This course runs for 11-weeks and is suitable for adults and students age 14+.
Cost £85.00 by email/Moodle (£60.00 for student under-19) or £100.00 by post. This includes a free day trip.

Rocks from the Pressure-cooker
The course is all about the process of metamorphism and the metamorphic rocks that result. Metamorphism has a reputation for being hard to understand and has often been poorly taught. My principle aim is to make the process easy to understand and appreciate, without recourse to complex issues around chemistry and physics or the use of lots of terminology. Metamorphism can be understood by anyone with a broad understanding of the basics of geology and most importantly, can be fun! I’ll be making much of cooking analogies in my quest to make metamorphism easy to understand.

The course runs for 10 weeks and costs £85.00 by email/Moodle or £100.00 by post.
