Course details
Course UCAS code: L700
Qualification type:
  • MA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
Geography is key to understanding and resolving many of the most pressing problems faced by society. Geography is the study of the Earth's surface, with particular emphasis on the relationships between people and their environment. Few other subjects cover such a diversity of phenomena, combining elements of the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities. You would normally apply for a Master of Arts (MA) degree; if you wish to study other humanities or social-science courses as well as your Geography courses during your degree, if you intend to specialise in Human Geography, and/or if you wish to emphasise your humanities and social-science training beyond University. However, your Geography degree provides great flexibility. After all, one of the great things about Geography is that it offers the widest possible curriculum, from studies of inter-cultural relationships, to deep understanding of the earth system.
Assessment Methods:
Students are assessed by any combination of three assessment methods: Coursework such as essays and reports completed throughout the course; Practical assessments of the skills and competencies they learn on the course; Written examinations at the end of each course. The exact mix of these methods differs between subject areas, years of study and individual courses. Honours projects are typically assessed on the basis of a written dissertation.
Application deadline details:

The university is lovely, nice and calm with enthusiastic and passionate teachers who helped me out a lot. The Uni has loads of places to eat and hang out in the Hub. There’s no SU venue, but Aberdeen is buzzing - you just have to suck up the 20 minute bus ride to town from campus, and there are loads of students in the city so you’ll be making loads of friends quickly. Belmont Street is a guaranteed good night out. Also, has 0.12 fast food shops per 1,000 people, so you'll be healthier at least...

    accommodation is cheap, teaching is relatively good and improving, the uni takes student feedback into consideration multiple times per term and the professors are really approachable, lots of sports and societies and plenty to do if you engage yourself
