Undergraduate studies

Our degree courses in Geography are flexible, allowing you to explore a broad range of geographical topics, and to focus on particular areas of interest.

The Department of Geography is a friendly and lively place to work and study, and is one of the leading departments in the UK for teaching, academic support and research.

We offer you the chance to experience and learn about different aspects of Geography in both the UK and overseas. We do this through a range of department-based teaching methods, the use of state-of-the-art laboratory facilities for both physical and human geography, and through exciting and varied field training.

Beyond your academic programme, our student-run Geography Society organises regular events and trips that really bring together our close, international community. It has been recognised by the Students' Union as the ‘Most Sociable Society’.
