Earth & Environmental Sciences and Geography & Sustainable Development (Schools of)
From 1st January 2017, the School of Geography & Geosciences has split into two new and separate schools:
In the 2014 REF results, Geography & Geosciences was ranked 5th in the UK of 74 Units assessed by the 2014 Unit of Assessment Panel for Geography, Environmental Studies and Archaeology. Geography & Geosciences was ranked 1st in the UK for the excellence of its Impact statements and 3rd in the UK in terms of its Research Environment. Our overall quality profile rates 83% of work as being of 4* and 3* quality.
Teaching in both schools is research-led and was judged 'excellent' by an external quality audit. Both the Guardian and the Times University Guides for 2016 rank us among the top places in the UK to study Geography and Geosciences.
Both schools offer several degree options and support an expanding community of both research and taught postgraduates within major research groupings.
