Course summary

With a broad geographical focus in your first year, this course goes on to teach you how to understand and analyse human impact on the environment, the world around you and all of the factors that affect this. Through teaching delivered by our internationally recognised academics, you will not only be learning about research but actively taking part as a researcher. In addition to fieldtrips in the UK and Europe, you will also have the opportunity to undertake study abroad, or to complete a work placement allowing you to put all of your recently acquired skills into practise, or to undertake a combination of both as part of a sandwich year. Throughout the degree you will develop your knowledge and a broad understanding of geography, with a focus on physical geography, in addition to developing intellectual and professional skills and abilities that will benefit your future career or studies. This programme has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
