The School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences offer scholarships for outstanding achievement. As part of our Potential High Achievers Scheme we want to encourage you to continue to work hard for your exams, which are so important for your future career. We will reward those applicants who achieve the highest grades in their exams and demonstrate a commitment to University of Plymouth by awarding them £1,000 when they enrol. We would encourage this scholarship to be spent on the final year optional field trip or towards study costs.

donates MOVE Software License
We are pleased to announce the donation of 10 sets of the MOVE software suite to the School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences by UK-based Petroleum Experts Limited.
This industry standard software package, which is valued at £1.31 million, facilitates three dimensional analysis and structural modelling of deformation of Earth's crust through time. Tools in the software suite aid in cross-section construction, kinematic restoration, geomechanical modeling, fracture studies, and stress analysis. The School greatly values the donation of this software and the opportunity to continue to integrate MOVE into the teaching and research activities of both undergraduate and postgraduate students and academic staff.
