“The Most Unusual Modules Around the World and Why They Matter” by QS Top Universities

QS Top Universities featured an unusual aspect of one of the courses at the School of Mining and Geosciences (the School) taught by Associate Professor Dr. Laurent Richard. "An unusual aspect in this course appeared when the School was asked to rescue an ichthyosaur which was found in a Jurassic formation of the Uralsk region.
