Course and general enquiries

You can contact the teaching and research teams within Earth and Planetary Sciences by ASK or email any time. ASK directs your query to the most appropriate member of staff and you'll be able to track your query's progress and response on this system. We will respond to your ASK email or phone call in less than five working days and will let you know if it takes longer than this. We can also schedule a video callback using Microsoft Teams.
