    I am thinking of doing earth and ocean science in NUIG. Can anyone tell me if I can become a geologist out of this course? Thanks

  • Yeh, that's a proper geology course. You can become a member of the IGI and a candidate fellow of Geol Soc. Galway's a nice spot and that's a pretty good department as well.

    So would it be the same course say if I was to geology in Dublin? Can I get the same jobs out of it?

    Yes, exactly same and recognised in the same way as the UCD, TCD, and UCCs degrees. There are differences but these are more research specific (eg Galway has always been good for marine geology, UCD for sedimentology etc...).

    That's great thanks for your help :)




  • I did this course and some of my classmates are geologist in Ireland and further afield, usually in a field :-)

    Oh good! I'd love to examine volcanic sites or past earthquake zones (that kind of geology) rocks, etc .. Would I be able to get a job like this out of it I wonder?

    There's jobs about, best thing to do is have a look at http://www.earthworks-jobs.com, it'll give you an idea about the kinds of jobs there are.

    Yep, no issues there. A masters in structural geology or tectonic geology would help too.
