Do you want to understand the behaviour of natural systems and help address some of the most important environmental issues facing societies today?

Our Geography BSc programme will develop your knowledge of the processes that shape our ever-changing planet, understanding of critical global challenges including climate change, environmental degradation and sustainability, and allow you to explore novel management and policy solutions to key issues facing societies worldwide. Year One provides a broad foundation in physical and human geography and Years Two and Three offer a range of exciting optional modules from both sides of the discipline, providing flexibility to tailor your study towards your interests and career goals. You will have opportunities to develop both subject-specific and transferable skills including spatial analysis and geographical information systems (GIS), statistical methods, coding, effective communication and problem-solving, unlocking a wide range of employment options after graduation. You can also explore key concepts from physical geography through fieldwork in the UK and destinations further afield such as the Netherlands, before designing your own research project in your final year with guidance and support from our experts.

This programme is based in the School of Geography on QMUL’s Mile End campus in the vibrant heart of east London. You will join a learning community of students and academics, drawn from over 35 countries across the world. Each student has an academic advisor who supports their studies and transition to university. Our student experience and engagement team provide further pastoral care and social opportunities outside of the classroom. The School’s dedicated Careers Consultant offers one-to-one advice and coaching meetings for students and hosts regular employer events on campus that often feature returning graduates from the School.

Course Info
TESTIMONIAL - I really enjoyed the diversity of the course. You can be touring the streets of Victorian London in the morning and then learning about how climate has changed over the past six million years in the afternoon. You can add an extra dimension to what you learn in lectures through field and laboratory work, which means you can contribute to current research being carried out by experienced and passionate academics.
