Course summary

TEF Silver

University of Chester has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.

Find out more about the TEF.

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.
