Most of the world's population lives near, or exploits, the coastal zone, and it is one of the most important environments on Earth. Understanding the coastal zone requires an integrated view of both terrestrial (e.g., climate, land use, industrial activity) and marine (e.g., waves, tides, sea level) processes. Marine Geography, and this degree course, is concerned with the interaction of physical, chemical and biological processes in the transition from the terrestrial environment to the oceanic environment across the coastal zone. These processes include the changing properties and transport of water, sediments and biogeochemical components (such as carbon) from the land into the sea. The Marine Geography degree course also considers the nature of the coastal zone in terms of its morphology, dynamics and properties, and examines the impacts of environmental change, climate, sea level change, and pollution on its health and sustainability.

Application deadline details:
How's your Welsh? Nearly half of the town speak it, so better brush up! Bangor is a beautiful place, with Snowdonia nearby. The nights out are legendary although, you'll never have one like it anywhere else. Be warned – between the massive hills everywhere and the sticky floors, you’re not gonna want to wear your best shoes. It’s a small town so you’ll make loads of friends quickly. As for the uni itself, my teachers were really charming, intelligent and unafraid to push you into new ways of thinking, and the Union were amazing at making us feel welcome and supported.
