    What are the best Universities to go to if you want to teach Geography?
    Whichever university offers a Geography degree with the content and learning environment that will allow you to do well and get some work experience in schools/with young people while you study.

    The traditional route into secondary teaching is BSc/BA degree in the subject you intend to teach followed by a postgraduate course that will train you to teach (usually a PGCE or some school based training that will get your QTS).

    https://getintoteaching.education.go...each-geography has more information but it is aimed mainly at people already studying at university. Have a look at the entry requirements for a Geography PGCE to find out what sort of experience you will need.
