  • Course description
    School of Geography
    The School of Geography is one of the largest and most successful in Britain. We have over thirty-five academic staff with a wide range of academic interests and a long history of academic and applied research. The School’s international reputation for its research was recognised in the last (2001) HEFCE Research Assessment Exercise with the award of a prestigious 5 rating. We were also rated as ‘Excellent’ in the last Teaching Quality Assessment Exercise.

    Excellent facilities for research are available within the School including extensive computing and GIS facilities, well-equipped and staffed physical geography science laboratories, a large map collection and a growing availability of on-line and digital information through our Geographical Resources Unit. In addition postgraduates benefit from the facilities provided by one of Britain’s leading universities. Close contacts exist with many industrial, commercial and public sector organisations. The School also maintains an active research seminar series. Drawing on the combined resources of the department, faculties and the University we are able to offer a broad-based and expert programme of research training, approved by the relevant Research Councils (ESRC and NERC), in both human and physical geography. In human geography our Masters programme was awarded the important ‘Research Training’ status by the ESRC in 2002, identifying it as an approved route to PhD research.

    Over the past few years we have established a record as one of the most successful Geography departments in Britain for attracting NERC and ESRC funding, both for research and research studentships, including CASE awards.

    In addition to specialist geographical training and education we provide facilities for training in fields such as project management, teaching and learning, presentation skills and computing.
