University Geoscience UK is the subject association of geoscience departments/schools based within universities in the British Isles (including geology, applied geology, Earth science, geophysics, geochemistry and some environmental science). Formerly known as CHUGD, University Geoscience UK promotes discussion and exchange of information between departments/schools, and provides a point of contact between these and professional, government and quality control agencies. Membership is at departmental/school rather than individual level and all heads of department/school, or their nominees, are ex officio departmental/school representatives.
The purpose of University Geoscience UK is:
The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) will host two workshops for postgraduate students on teaching geography, Earth or environmental sciences. Registration is open for the first workshop on 2 May 2017.
