Does anyone do physical geography at university?
What’s it like?
I feel like physical geography would be the perfect university course for me, because geography has always been my favourite school subject, but I’m starting to like human geography less, and be more interested in geology and ecology and stuff

Hey,

Have you tried having a search on the TSR search bar for threads called Physical Geography? A quick search then came up with some threads discussing the university course. You may find it beneficial to jump in to some of these threads.

It is also important to check the course curriculum or modules at each different university as although the course may be Physical Geography different aspects may come up.

I hope this helps,
Tom :shakehand:

Thanks for the useful info
However, my main reason for making this discussion was because I searched the words ‘physical geography’ and found nothing. Anything that came up was about physics or something

No problem at all, I see. Hopefully this thread will pick up or the guys at TSR can help bump the thread.

Cheers,
Tom

Lots of unis do dual honours physical geography and geology degrees - just google! I do human geography (sorry) but have had the chance to do modules which focus on human and physical issues, especially in first year.

Some unis would let you change course within the first few weeks anyway if you decided you wasn't enjoying certain elements e.g. you wanted to do single honours instead of dual honours as you didn't enjoy the geology aspects as much as you thought you would.

Good luck with your applications! Geography is such a broad subject and there is so much more to learn beyond school and college, whether human or physical. You should consider what fieldtrip opportunities are on offer at each uni too!

Yes I do consider that
At Liverpool they have a trip to wellington, where all my extended family is, as part of geology and physical geography
And at Leicester, they have a trip to the amazon rainforest, which I’ve always wanted to visit, as part of physical geography
