Department of Geography

 

Prospective undergraduates

Prospective undergraduates

Geography is one of the most exciting subjects to study at university. We live in an interdependent world caught up in chains of events which span the globe. We depend upon an increasingly fragile physical environment, whose complex interactions require sophisticated analysis and sensitive management. These issues present intellectual and practical challenges of the first importance and they are amongst the central problems of modern geography.

The Department regularly scores at the top of national University league tables such as the Guardian and the Complete University Guide.
