Geology

Advice on how to plan your exchange within the Bachelor of Science

Optimal exchange dates: Year 2: Semester 2

Planning your exchange: Semester 2 of Year 2 is the most flexible time to take exchange when pursuing the Geology major. GEOL20004 Field Mapping and Sedimentary Geology is the only Level 2 pre-requisite subject required in this semester.

Things to consider: The Faculty of Science has mapped multiple subjects at partner institutions equivalent to GEOL20004 Field Mapping and Sedimentary Geology. However, students should review all study plans to see what options are available in this area. This list of study plans, and equivalent subjects is not exhaustive and should in no way preclude students from reviewing other options at partner institutions.

Mapped subjects for the Geology major include:
