Course content

Geography and Environment has a vibrant international postgraduate community set in one of the leading centres for geographical and environmental research. There are postgraduate opportunities in all of our research areas, and applications for full- and part-time study are welcomed at any time.

Our Graduate School currently has around 65 full- and part-time students from the UK and overseas, funded by research councils and other sources, and it captures all that’s good about research: a mixture of stimulating intellectual activity and enjoyable social interaction. Each MPhil and PhD student receives formal research training and detailed tuition tailored to their own needs. Postgraduates are integrated into our research community through our active postgraduate research group, participation in research seminars with visiting speakers, and research workshops given by both students and staff.
