The geography course covers a wide range of content including both physical and human geography modules. The work/ assessment style has varied, from online tests, exams, coursework and primary research (interviews and land-use surveys, scientific practicals) to use of essential statistical programs and other software. The content of this course was very interesting - we studied areas ranging from culture, society and economy to river systems, ecology and glaciers. Communicate with other students rather than rely on lecturers to answer all of your questions (they cannot offer 1-1's as often as other subjects)×

Due to the wide range of options available in terms of food around the university, it is widely affordable and makes living on a budget a whole lot easier! The careers office is particularly helpful when looking for jobs, updating cvs, volunteering etc×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
