Earth Sciences is the study of the planet we live upon. The rapidly changing scope and nature of the subject is reflected in the three courses available: Geology, Geography and Environmental Science. If you want to understand how our planet works, at depth and on the surface, to answer fundamental questions about the origin, development and the future of the Earth, these are the subjects to study. If you are concerned about pollution, air miles, sea level rising and clmate change then Environmental Science is perfect for you. Mass extinctions, fossils, minerals and climate change are all considered in Geology, and Geography looks at nature hazards, development, and the global institutions which aim to manage changes.

The Henley College has enabled me to flourish and grow into a more confident and independent person in addition to helping me achieve my academic potential.
I am always keen to recommend the College to prospective students as I feel my time at Henley has prepared me perfectly for the next stage of my life."
