Physical Geography

Students surveying a mountain range

Explore the Earth's landscapes, climate and the dynamic physical processes that shape the Earth's surface.

On this course, you will explore a range of exciting subjects including volcanoes, atmosphere, climate and natural hazards such as flooding and coastal erosion. Discover the evolution of landscapes and the impacts and influences surrounding these changes.



Between the impressive mountains in the north and a biodiverse tidal estuary in the south, you will gain a wealth of hands-on experience exploring some of the UK's most unique areas of geographic interest.

We take regular day trips along the cost and to the Brecon Beacons mountain range in South Wales, as well as overseas trips to locations like Switzerland and Tenerife.

Fieldwork contributions

All our programmes provide hands-on experience in real field situations at no extra cost. We also supply specialist equipment for working in the field, supporting the widest range of field experiences linked to classroom-based teaching. (Students are asked to make a contribution towards the cost of food whilst away and a deposit for some fieldwork equipment).
