What will I learn?

On this course you'll learn about the world we live in and examine the interaction between human and physical processes and practices. There is plenty of opportunity to put theory into practice through fieldwork at home and overseas. Teaching is often alongside external organizations. These include planning departments, environmental agencies, business support networks and town centre management teams. This helps your professional development and makes you more employable upon graduation. The course has been accredited by the Royal Geographical Society for 2018 entry. This means that our course contains a solid academic foundation in geographical knowledge and skills, and prepares graduates to address the needs of the world beyond higher education. If you would like to study geography at Kingston University but are not yet ready to join the first year of a BSc (Hons) course, you can include an extra foundation year within your chosen degree.
