  • Objectives
    This degree draws upon a distinctive feature of Geography – studying the interaction between social and natural processes. It develops your understanding of these processes in the appraisal of environmental resources and constraints, considering issues ranging from water pollution and preservation of habitats to global warming.
  • 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.
