Geography has a very long tradition at Cambridge. The first lecturer in Geography was appointed in 1888, the first Reader in 1898. Each year about 100 undergraduates are admitted to the University of Cambridge to read Geography. Geography at Cambridge involves undergraduates in a wide range of lectures, practical classes and field courses, organised around a three-year course (called the Geographical Tripos) which is divided into three parts, with an examination at the end of each year.
