Geography and environment

Bridge the gap between human society and the natural environment, and find solutions to some of our planet’s most pressing problems.

Whether that problem is environmental change, population dynamics, biodiversity loss or global inequalities, our geography and environment degrees will prepare you to apply pivotal societal and environmental knowledge and skills for the benefit of all.

You will have the opportunity to travel on exciting UK and overseas residential field courses in years one and two with no additional fees. Get hands on and see the world at our environmental field station and at fieldwork in locations such as Iceland, Switzerland or the High Arctic.

Benefit from extremely close links with local and national employers and environmental groups. We offer many opportunities to apply your knowledge to help you address real world environmental and geographical issues, and gain valuable work experience in the process.
