I know that I would like to be part of this important and growing enterprise in a way that connects science and business. I would l be happy to study either at University, while developing my skills of the other simultaneously. Geology is a science that fascinates me as am hugely interested in how and why Earth was formed the way it was, and the factors involved, from the beginning to the present day.

Another reason I love geology is the fact that there are so many different types: glaciology, hydrology, meteorology etc., all of which I am keen to learn about, particularly geochemistry as it studies at a molecular level. Likewise, the biology involved also fascinates me, as it includes learning about how geological change affects life on earth.

I feel that having good business skills gives you the ability to think strategically and make the best decisions. I enjoyed Higher
