    There aren't that many universities in Scotland, it will take you less than an hour to check their websites and research different geography degrees.

    While the above poster is correct that the number of choices is limited, it should take you far longer than an hour to decide. Geography degrees in Scotland usually award either a BSc or MA (both of which are undergraduate degrees of equivalent merit) depending on their mix of physical and social science. For example, Heriot Watt offers only an MA, that very different from the geography course offered by Stirling.

    I'd have a look through their websites and narrow down to a handful that are in line with your interest. If you think you might change from physical to human (or vice versa), as many students do, then look for one with a good mix of content.

    I meant it wouldn't take long to do some preliminary research (location, read the online prospectus, get an idea of module options etc), you can whittle down the list of options quite quickly if you know what you're looking for. But yes, you are right that one should spend much longer than an hour researching where to apply.
