University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
Geographers at Chester are as likely to be sieving soils and sediments or studying cultural interpretations of landscape in a tourist brochure, as to be using Geographical Information Systems (GIS) to plan a market research campaign or map the carbon footprint of a rural community. All this ensures that the knowledge and skills of our students are of relevance to today's employment needs and makes Geography a popular degree with a wide range of employers.
For the latest example of curriculum availability on this degree programme please refer to the University of Chester's Website.
The majority of assessment is through continuous coursework assignments, complemented by some end-of-module examinations. The Department engages in a wide variety of innovative and imaginative coursework assignments, from podcasting, oral presentations and posters to briefing papers, consultancy reports and essays.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
