I am thinking of applying to Cambridge next year to study geography but I am struggling to pick a college. I was wondering if I should be considering what areas of geography the directors of studies in each college specialise in? Should I apply to a college with a director of studies who specialises in human geography as that is what I am more interested in and what I have done more extra reading about, or does it not really matter? In an interview, would the director of studies ask more questions relating to their own areas of expertise and would they be more likely to pool or reject an applicant who is interested in a different area of geography?

It doesn't matter! If the specialist you need is at another college then you'll be sent there for supervisions (the small group teaching).

As for interviews and admissions, that's not how it works - they don't care which kind of geography you like, and their specialisms won't really come into play much if at all (you're applying for undergrad - their specialisms come at a later stage than that!).

Hope that helps!
