Geography student in a Laboratory

Our Degree Programmes

Entry Requirements

For taught courses, applicants are normally expected to hold at least a second-class honours degree, or its equivalent, in geography or related disciplines. An upper second-class degree is desirable, but lower second-class degrees may be accepted, subject to satisfactory references. Anyone not meeting these requirements, or who holds non-standard qualifications, should, in the first instance, contact the department. Mature students who do not possess the normal qualifications but who have relevant industrial or academic experience are strongly encouraged to apply. The Masters degrees can be taken on either a full or part time basis.

English Language Requirements

If you have not previously been taught in English or are not a native English speaker:

  • English language requirements are IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.0 in all four categories), TOEFL 575 (paper), 250 (computer-based), or 90 (internet-based) or equivalent.

For preparatory courses contact the English Language Teaching Unit. A pass in course D satisfies the English language requirements for taught courses.
