Cardiff Case Studies

Geographical research for secondary school teaching

The School of Geography and Planning is a centre of excellence in teaching and research in both Human Geography and Planning. Together with the School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, we have developed the initiative, through which we hope contemporary research can be used to inform and inspire the teaching of Geography in classrooms across the UK. 

From this website Geography teachers and students are able to download case studies free of charge. 

We have case studies on topics as diverse as ‘the environmental impacts of major sporting events’ to ‘slum upgrading in the developing world’. In addition to our online resource, in June each year we hold a very popular Case Studies conference for teachers. 

Please explore our website and if you have any queries feel free to contact Dr. Peter Mackie, Human Geography Course Director, for further information:
