Entry requirements

You’re normally expected to have a Merit (an average of 60% of overall) in a Masters degree and an upper second-class (2.1) undergraduate honours degree.

Your qualification should be in geography or a closely-related subject area.

In exceptional circumstances, you may be considered for the degree if you have a qualification in a different subject area. You may also be considered for the degree if you have other professional qualifications or experience of equivalent standing.

We also offer a 1+3 route incorporating the MSc in Social Research Methods or further specialist research training modules within Year 1 for those without the required research training. Further information about the 1+3 can be found here.

Months of entry

January, May, September

Course content

We enjoy a reputation for world-leading research in a wide range of areas, including policy-relevant studies on global socioeconomic and cultural transformations, and sensitive environmental systems.

You’ll work with expert faculty who are major contributors to policy debates within the UK Government, the EU and other international organisations.

We have reviewed all our courses to ensure the best possible learning experience for September, taking account of latest information and advice in relation to COVID-19. For updates on changes that may affect contact time, assessments, fieldwork and study abroad, check Course changes for 2020-2021. These changes are not yet reflected in our prospectus information and, of course, may be revised as the situation evolves.
