Geography - Structured

Course Overview
Geography boasts a vibrant graduate community of PhD and M.Litt students. It offers an exceptional academic environment for graduate research in a highly supportive setting. Our students hold a range of scholarships and are researching across a diverse array of topics. Students are provided with high-quality dedicated workspace and access to a choice of facilities and expertise to assist in their research. As part of the doctoral training available on the Structured PhD programme, students avail themselves of a range of interdisciplinary taught modules. 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.

Entry requirements

For admission to the PhD, an upper Second Class Honours, Grade 1 minimum (or equivalent international qualification), is required.
