Our BSc Geography with Study Abroad programme offers you the opportunity to tailor your physical geography degree to suit your developing interests. This four-year degree includes a year studying abroad, between the second and final years. In this third year you study at a university with which we have established links, for example in North America or Australia, and credit for this academic work counts towards your degree at the University of Exeter.
The first year of the programme provides an excellent grounding in both physical and human geography and ensures you develop the core skills required to progress successfully. The second and final years allow for greater flexibility and specialisation with an emphasis on physical geography. You can choose from a diverse set of optional modules which span a breadth of topics including areas in which we have a particular strength such as hydrology, geomorphology and earth surface processes, Quaternary environmental and climatic change, and GIS. You will also have the opportunity to undertake physical geography research methods, participate in a physical geography field trip, and carry out a physical geography dissertation.
Through field work and other forms of experiential learning the programme aims to promote your curiosity about natural, social and cultural environments and to enable you to develop a range of skills specific to the geographer as well as a series of cognitive, generic and transferable skills.
