Course content

We work at the forefront of global research agendas, leading the way in finding solutions to major social, political and environmental challenges. This exciting and impactful research takes us to some of the remotest places on Earth, including the high mountains, both poles and the depths of the tropical rainforests, as well as to the world’s major urban conurbations in the global north and south.

Our research spans over the following areas:
