At the School of Geography, our renowned teaching and research is developing future decision-makers and industry leaders. We're conducting pivotal research all over the world – engaging with government, tackling global issues and trying to make a real difference. Working in some of the remotest places on Earth, or tackling urban development and cultural change closer to home, our academics are experts in their fields, bringing you closer to the latest research and pressing topics.
Field work opportunities
One of geography’s most dynamic aspects is the emphasis it places on ‘real world’ learning. To really appreciate geography you have to see for yourself how river ecosystems work, or why cities develop as they do. Our courses give you the opportunity to take part in fieldwork across the world, as part of your degree.
