Department of Geography
Your place in the world.
What we offer
Fieldwork is an integral and important part of the degree programmes within the Department of Geography. All of our students take part in fieldwork in places as diverse as Arctic Lapland, Berlin, Barcelona and Malta. There are three opportunities in the first year, a week long residential in the second year, and various field days in the third year.
A new interactive map of London developed by UoP along with others showing where German bombs landed over the course of eight months during World War II gives new meaning to the word Blitz - Bombsight.
Postgraduate research opportunities
The Department of Geography has a thriving postgraduate research programme and welcomes enquiries and applications from prospective full time and part time UK, EU and international PhD researchers. PhD researchers conduct independent and original research on a chosen topic, working closely with a team led by a supervisor who guides and advises them throughout their study.
