The benefits of a Masters extend beyond improving your earning potential. They can provide you with personal and professional skills to accelerate your development. They are also an opportunity to differentiate yourself from your peers, many of whom will have similar A-level and undergraduate qualifications.
Students studying geographic sciences can learn about Earth, its landscapes, environments and people. They can also gain an understanding of the connection between people, communities and the natural world. Scholars may also explore the technology used for understanding such connections.
France is currently among the 20 best performing countries in terms of the economy due to their excellent results-oriented higher education learning. Most of the courses at universities are offered in the French language. France has 60 public and 100 private universities.

IMACS is an integrated Master of Science designed by 4 institutions with a wide range of leadership in clay science :the University of Poitiers (UP) in France (co-ordinator), the University of Aveiro (UA) in Portugal, the Technical University of Crete (TUC) (Chania) in Greece, the Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul (UFRGS) (Porto Alegre) in Brazil. Why clay minerals?
Interest in clays results from their common availability, and their unique physical and chemical properties. No other minerals currently attract so great an interest.
In addition to their conventional ancient use as bricks, tiles, ceramics and for paper coating and waste management more recently, clays have found many novel applications. Clay minerals have provided a boost in technology because they are inexpensive nanomaterials, and as such, they have a huge potential for the synthesis of polymer nanocomposites with superior mechanical and thermal properties. The optimisation of adsorption, colloidal and rheological properties also opens prospects of using clay minerals for medical uses, pollution control, and environmental protection. Clay minerals play a role in economic geology (both as an important mineral resource and in energy resource exploration) and soil management. Clays also have many negative effects in geotechnical engineering, manifested in the form of landslides, mudflows, and the deterioration of clay-based construction materials.... [-]

The Master Hydrogeology and Transfers of the University of Poitiers aims to train high-level hydrogeologists able to apprehend the major environmental problems of groundwater resources management both quantitatively (optimization of the implementation of drilling, determination of the volumes that can be sampled) than qualitative (physicochemical quality of water, pollution problem, ...).Real practical field work and a competent teaching team
Hydrogeological Experimental Site of the University of Poitiers
HEU is a unique research and training infrastructure in Europe. Thirty holes of more than 120m deep are located on land belonging to the University of Poitiers. These boreholes intercept an aquifer (hydrogeological reservoir) limestone fractured and karstified.... [-]
The Geoeconomy and Risk Management course, level 5, has two objectives:. Train professionals able to understand the international environment of international economic relations beyond the only business issues (economic war, culture and management, sustainable development, compliance and due diligence, etc.), to assess risks, Anticipate difficulties in order to support their administration or their company and its collaborators in their international activities; . To enable the acquisition of essential tools and instruments (watch, intelligence, security) for decision-making in a shifting and complex international context. . Ensure the originality of the graduated profiles by developing dual skills (geoeconomics, monitoring or compliance, following the initial curriculum), in order to increase professionalisation and employability.
