    I currently have an AAB offer for Geography BA at UCL and in August if I get an A or higher in Maths I was considering switching to the Geography with Quantitative Methods course. However, there seems to be very limited information regarding this 'specialist pathway' on the UCL website. I was just wondering if anyone could share information about how it works, what it consists of, how difficult it is and whether it is worth studying over pure Human Geography - Thanks a lot!


    I'm a first year Geographer, although not doing the quantitative methods course. Its a super new course, this is the first year they introduced it, so its trial and error so far i think. The difference is that you don't do a module which everyone else does (data interpretation module) and instead do a separate module which is more mathsy. If you do BA/BSc course they're exactly the same for your first year, everyone has to do at least 1 physical module, if not 2 (depending on what you want to choose). There are 3 compulsory modules, and then 5 optional (of those 5, 3 are human, 2 physical), although you have the option of doing an ancillary (module outside your department). I don't think the course is more difficult per say than the BA/BSC course, its just more mathsy really. Hope this helps! PM me if you want xx
