    Hi,

    My daughter is looking to study physical geography and Exeter is one of the potential choices.

    The open day at Penryn didn't have any Physical Geography lecturers available to talk too, so she is really unsure whether to include it in the 5 choices.

    She is keen to study Hazards / Volcanos

    Her other choices are Reading / Sussex / Royal Holloway and Aberystwyth

    Any students able to give some feedback on Penryn??

    Thanks

    Hi
    I am at the University of Exeter studying Physical Geography in second year but I am on the Streatham Campus which is actually in Exeter but the modules are fairly similar. I also have friends studying at Penryn, Reading and Holloway and they are all loving their courses.
    I have a love of Volcanoes and natural hazards, there was only one module last year based on it and there is one module this year but it is next semester. As you get more advanced into the topic it becomes more of a geology topic, I was considering doing my dissertation on this area however my tutor advised me not to as there are no geology based modules to look into and if you investigate risk it becomes more of a human geography area.
    I would recommend looking at the modules for the courses, just google them and they should all come up stage 1 is year one, stage 2 is year two etc. although these could potentially change.
    Exeter is a really good university and there is so much support for students. I was very much in love with volcanoes but Glaciers have taken my heart now! But you need to be brave to study new things.
    Feel free to message me if you want anymore information
