The Palaeontological Association provides information on Undergraduate and Postgraduate (Masters and PhD) courses, as well as articles on possible career paths within palaeontology.

Undergraduate Courses

Could you picture yourself studying earthquake zones to develop early warning systems, searching for energy resources or analysing fossils to further understand evolution? If so a geology/palaeontology undergraduate course could be for you.

Masters and PhD Courses

These lists detail the courses and PhD projects that we are aware of. They are by no means exhaustive and the institutions listed, and others, may well be offering additional projects. Further details for many of these projects are available on institutional website. Note that application deadlines can be as early as January, and interviews usually take place during the period January-April.
