  • Objectives
    Our Geography and Economics degree is one of the few available in the UK and allows you to explore the overlaps and differences between their approaches to important current issues of urban and regional development. We have a strong grouping of both geographers and economists working in this area, so that we can ensure that students reap the full benefits from these two complementary subjects.
  • Entry requirements
    There are different entry qualifications for each programme. Some programmes require you to have a certain amount of knowledge in a subject before you begin the degree programme – this is called a ‘subject requirement’. Other programmes do not have any specific subject requirements. All programmes will, however, expect you to have reached a certain standard in your education and will ask you to achieve certain grades in your examinations. Most programmes have a standard offer so that you know in advance what you are likely to need. Please note that even if you have the minimum entry qualifications, you are not necessarily guaranteed a place on the degree programme.
