From climate change to social inequalities, geographers tackle some of the most critical global issues facing the world today.

Hear from Associate Head Pauline Couper

When you think of the big issues facing society – climate change, loss of biodiversity, pollution, migration, inequality and sustainable development – you are thinking about geography.

We have a strong sense of community among our Geography students and staff. Small class sizes mean that we really get to know each other, and the staff work hard to ensure you are not just a face in a crowd. This means you will always know where to find us, and we pride ourselves on being quick to respond to your questions.

All of our assessments are coursework; there are no exams. This ensures that the work you are doing reflects the kind of work geographers do in the workplace. You will hear from a range of guest speakers throughout the year to explain what it’s like to tackle the issues you are studying in ‘live’ settings. And we complement that with field trips in many of our modules, from half day visits to international trips.
