Edge Hill University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
This degree will enable you to learn about our natural world, balancing the present-day study of physical geography with the geological dimension of how the Earth has changed through time since it was formed. You will gain skills in the fundamental techniques of both physical geography and geology, with a strong emphasis on practical field and laboratory work. This is underpinned by an exploration of the geological features of phenomena such as rivers, oceans, erosion and volcanoes. You will explore them both as they are now and as they were in the geological past. In combination, these investigations will provide a unique perspective on our planet and how it changes.

Methods of assessment display your knowledge and understanding and develop and demonstrate your competence in subject-specific and key skills. All modules are assessed by either coursework only or a mixture of coursework and examination. Exams never count for more than 60% of the total mark for those modules that include an examination. Coursework includes practical portfolios, essays, project reports, field notebooks, individual and group oral presentations and poster presentations.
The number of student respondents and response rates can be important in interpreting the data. For further information, see the Discover Uni website.
