Interested in studying geography, especially human side, but wondering which unis are best in terms of research, graduate prospects and uni experience. Any advice would be helpful!
It is great that you are considering studying geography.
Here at the University of Hull we offer two geography degrees - BA Geography and BSc Geography
Our BA (Hons) Geography course focuses on topics within social science and humanities such as sustainability and development, cities and globalisation and people culture and space. All our Geography programmes have a common first year in which you’ll get to study human and physical geography and learn geographical skills. In your second and third year, you can continue to do both human and physical geography, or choose to focus on human geography - the choice is yours. Further information about the BA Course can be found here - https://www.hull.ac.uk/study/undergr...graphy-ba-hons
Our BSc (Hons) Geography course focuses on the physical processes that govern the state of the natural environment. Practical work is at the heart of this degree. You'll gain extensive hands-on training in analytical techniques in the laboratory and in the field, as well as studying the theory of environmental variability.
