On our BSc Physical Geography course you will study processes that shape the ecological world around us.
Learn through a mixture of engaging field classes and technical training in laboratory skills, with plenty of support from our academics.
Field classes are one of the most popular aspects of this degree and include trips to Naples, the island of Crete, and Almeria in Spain. Students love the chance to get out there and complete field based research.
Field classes are subsidised but additional costs are involved. You will be guaranteed a place on at least one field trip. We are also developing additional field trips to Iceland, Africa and Latin America.
The award-winning Whiteknights campus is incredibly beautiful and diverse, offering you the chance to carry out some experiments and tests on-site.
