Geography (with foundation year) at University of Hull - UCAS

Course summary

BSc Geography focuses on the physical processes that govern the state of the natural environment. Practical work is at the heart of this degree. You'll gain extensive hands-on training in analytical techniques in the laboratory and in the field, as well as studying the theory of environmental variability. We prioritise learning outside the classroom with core field trips – think locations such as Almeria and Tenerife. The cost of all our core field trips during your first and second years is included in your fees. During your final year, there are further optional trips to international destinations, such as Iceland. The foundation year is ideal to boost your skills and knowledge if you don't quite meet our academic entry requirements.
