Course details
Course UCAS code: 09F4
Qualification type:
  • BSc (Hons), Full-time With Time Abroad , Duration: 4 Years
Course Summary:
This four-year course has the same basic structure as BSc Geography, but you will spend your third year studying geography and other subjects at an English-speaking university abroad. In year one you receive an overview of human and physical geography, and develop a range of geographical and scientific skills. The remaining years are organised around specialist units from human and/or physical geography. Physical geography units cover three broad areas: glaciology, hydrology and environmental change. Human geography units provide in-depth study of cultural, economic and social geography, emphasising the importance of theory and methods for analysing contemporary geographical problems and policies. Topics range from economic development and global politics to inequalities of health and contemporary social theory. You will also develop skills in the use of specialised computer software, statistics and data collection in the field. Field trips and practical work are key components of the course. There are UK residential trips in year one, and in year two there is an overseas field trip. Your third-year studies abroad will be arranged on an individual basis. We currently have exchange agreements with universities in the US, Canada, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Hong Kong. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad. The skills that you acquire throughout your studies will be applied in a self-directed dissertation project in your final year.

Bristol’s great if you don’t really fancy concrete and a bustling metropolis – it’s a city uni with leafy streets, loads of independent shops and an intimate, community vibe. The city is kind of expensive, but if you budget properly you can stretch your loan out to have a great time here. There are loads of things to do in town, with a hectic nightlife and a great dubstep/drum and bass scene! The Uni is amazing too, with great facilities (the free bus onto campus is very helpful), and amazing tutors who were really inspiring and helpful.

    The past three years spent at Bristol were some of the best years I have had. The teaching, the city, the atmosphere. Could not have been better :)
