Course content

Birkbeck's MSc Geography offers you the opportunity to tailor a postgraduate programme in geography to your own interests and professional needs.

You can select modules from the exciting range offered in our department and bring them together into a bespoke programme. We offer a wide choice of modules that respond to the demands of today's workplace and are linked to the cutting-edge research interests of our staff. This programme gives you the opportunity to study with internationally recognised experts who are defining the field with their ground-breaking research. Ours is a lively, stimulating environment in which to study and research.

You will also benefit from our mix of classroom and field-based teaching, including a number of fieldwork opportunities that bring together students to build social and professional networks and develop important skills in data collection and analysis. You will develop the social and technical skills you need for both academic research and the modern workplace.

The MSc Geography is ideal if you want to study geography at postgraduate level for personal or professional reasons and want a flexible evening study course that allows you to explore and deepen your interests. You will also complete a piece of research in an area of special interest to you.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, the requirement for this programme is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 7.0, with not less than 7.0 in each of the sub-tests.

Fees and funding

The government's new postgraduate loan scheme allows you to borrow up to £10,000 to cover the cost of your tuition fees, living costs or other study expenses – and you don't have to start repaying until 2019.

Part-time students who are experiencing financial need may apply for assistance from the Birkbeck Alumni Fund Postgraduate Opportunity Bursary.
