This four-year course has the same basic structure as the BSc Geography, but you will spend your third year studying geography and other subjects at an English-speaking university abroad.
In year one you will receive an advanced overview of both human and physical geography and will develop a wide range of geographical and scientific skills. The following years are organised around specialist units from human and/or physical geography.
In addition to specialist units, you will take core elements that develop your analytical skills, including the use of specialised computer software, statistics and data collection in the field.
Field trips and practical work are key components of the course. In year one there are UK residential trips and an informal weekend where you can meet fellow students before term starts. In year two there are field trip opportunities overseas.
Your third-year studies abroad will be arranged on an individual basis. Currently, we have exchange agreements with partner universities in the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Visit our Global Opportunities website for more information about where you can study abroad.
The skills that you acquire throughout your studies will be applied in a self-directed dissertation project, which comprises a large part of the degree.
