Description

Advertisement

This programme offers an overview of contemporary methods and techniques in human geography, meeting the needs of those considering research at graduate level.

Combining hands-on experience of planning and executing research projects in the social sciences with a critical overview of debates in methodology, the programme offers the ideal grounding for students wishing to pursue a PhD in human geography.

More broadly, it equips students from a wide range of backgrounds with general and subject-specific research skills opening employment opportunities in a research position in the private, public or voluntary sectors.

Research interests span cultural, economic, development, historical, political, feminist, social and urban geography. We have a longstanding reputation for conducting leading-edge, policy-relevant research organized around two main themes: Children, Youth and Families, and Migration; Identity and the State.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
