Geography - Structured
The wide menu of available options include modules that:
- are Discipline-Specific in that they augment the student's existing knowledge in their specialist area, for example, in the area of climate change; biogeography; rural, population, or political geography
- are Dissertation-Specific in that they supply core skills which are essential to completion of the research project e.g. core research skills and techniques relating to specific data collection and interpretation requirements
- acknowledge a student's professional development, e.g., presentation of papers at International Conferences
- enhance a student's employability through generic training e.g. Careers Workshops, computer literacy.
Each student will be assigned a primary Supervisor(s) and a Graduate Research Committee made up of experienced researchers to plan their programme of study and to provide on-going support to their research.
For admission to the PhD, an upper Second Class Honours, Grade 1 minimum (or equivalent international qualification), is required.
