Join a University ranked #1 in the UK for 'Geography and environmental studies' research (THE analysis of REF 2021) with an excellent reputation for teaching and learning (UK top ten for 'Geography & Environmental Science', Complete University Guide 2023).

This four-year course has the same basic structure as BSc Geography but you will spend your third year studying geography and other subjects at a partner university.

In year one you receive an overview of human and physical geography, and develop a range of geographical and scientific skills. The remaining years are organised around specialist units from human and/or physical geography.

Physical geography units cover three broad areas: glaciology, hydrology and environmental change.

Human geography units provide in-depth study of cultural, economic and social geography, emphasising the importance of theory and methods for analysing contemporary geographical problems and policies. Topics range from economic development and global politics to inequalities of health and contemporary social theory.

You will develop skills in the use of specialised computer software, statistics and data collection in the field. You will also take relevant language units to prepare you for studying in Europe.

Field trips and practical work are key components of the course. There are UK residential trips in year one and in year two there is typically an overseas field trip.

Your third-year studies abroad will be arranged on an individual basis. You will study in the language of your host country. We currently have exchange agreements with universities in Barcelona, Bonn, Grenoble, Paris, Lyon, Valencia and others. To find out more about studying abroad, visit Global Opportunities.

The skills that you acquire throughout your studies will be applied in a self-directed dissertation project in your final year.

This course is accredited by the following organisations

The Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) for the purpose of recognising the delivery of geographical knowledge, understanding, skills, approaches and attributes expected of high quality geography graduates.
