Bachelor of Mineral Sciences in Geology

The Geology Department at the University of Zambia has been a home for pioneering excellent teaching and research for well over thirty five (35) years, with our graduates becoming leaders in both academia and industry. Being the nation’s top public research university, we have extensive and experienced expertise in geosciences, enabling our students to conduct research at the cutting edge. The Department of Geology strives not only to conduct advanced research but to also provide high-quality education at undergraduate and postgraduate level. The Department has well established local research links with government ministries, quasi-government departments and the industries. We provide special tailored trainings in geosciences to meet the demands of our communities. We also enjoy international collaborations with universities and mining industry in research, training and education exchange programs.

Applicants with school-leaving qualifications shall normally be initially admitted to first year studies in the School of Natural Sciences. They must satisfy the first year requirements of that School before they are admitted to the School of Mines.

Applicants from the University of Zambia or another university or an institution of higher learning recognised by the Senate for this purpose may be admitted to courses of study for the degree of Bachelor of Mineral Sciences, and the Senate, is prepared to consider applications for exemptions from particular courses in respect of such applicants where, in the opinion of the Senate, the applicant in addition to the minimum requirements, holds other qualifications that represent a standard of attainment justifying exemptions from the course for which exemption is sought.

Students with technical qualifications (at diploma level) seeking exemption from the first year courses, may be considered by the School of Mines for admission to the second year in Geology, Mining, and Metallurgy and Mineral Processing under the following conditions:

  1. An applicant should have good ’0′ level grades in Mathematics and an  acceptable Science subject.
  2. An applicant with at least two years industrial experience shall be admitted to the School if he/she obtained an average of C+ in the courses that are equivalent to those ear marked for exemption at the University of Zambia.
  3. An applicant not meeting the requirement in (1) shall be admitted to the  School if he/she obtained an average of B in the courses that are equivalent  to those earmarked for exemption at the University of Zambia.
  4. All applications for exemptions must be lodged with the Registrar (with  supporting evidence) at the time of application for admission.
  5. The maximum number of exemptions which can be granted is the equivalent of sixteen courses i.e., no more than two years can be exempted in a five¬year programme in the School of Mines.

The equivalent courses from a diploma programme at the Copperbelt University are shown in the tables for    the departments of Geology, Mining, and Metallurgy and Mineral Processing together with the courses earmarked for exemption at the University of Zambia. However, diploma holders in these programmes other than those from the Copperbelt University will be subjected to similar selection procedure.
