Comments about Geography (PhD - MPhil) - At the institution - London - Greater London
Research study in geography can take a wide variety of forms across the social and physical sciences dependent on topic, but the common thread is the distinctive perspective, often interdisciplinary, that a geographical approach to research offers. Our students benefit not only from the advisory insight of specialist academics within the School of Geography, but also from a wider culture of support and advice from staff and other research students. It is this wide-ranging geographical perspective on a topic that often opens up new and fruitful avenues of work for those researching in the School. The School of Geography sees its research students as a central part of the community, who play a key role in the vitality of the wider research process. Students are themselves involved in teaching opportunities, seminars and publications as they progress through these advanced degrees. All of these activities sit in the context of the School’s respected national and international reputation in key areas of geographical research. Those completing our research degrees in the past have often moved on into highly skilled occupations in both the commercial and academic worlds.
