BA/BSc Geography (International)

The BA/BSc Geography (International) is meant to produce global citizens who have not only trained to a high level within the discipline of geography but have also experienced the extended study of that discipline in multiple geographic locales. The result will be an elite graduate who is recognizable through her or his academic expertise and globally recognized credentials.

The curriculum for this degree is identical to the BA/BSc Geography, but the student undertakes an additional year of study at an overseas partner university. During their third year, the Geography (International) candidate will live and study as if they are a regular student at the partner institution, gaining valuable international experience before returning to UCL to complete their degree in their fourth year.

Partner institutions include:

  • Universiteit van Amsterdam
  • Universiteit van Utrecht
  • Universite de Toulouse Le Mirail
  • Universite de Sorbonne
  • Universite de Grenoble
  • Universidtat de Barcelona
  • Universidad Autnoma de Madrid
  • Universidad de Sevilla
  • Universitat Potsdam
  • Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms – Universitat Bonn
  • Universitet Lund
  • University of Western Australia at Perth
  • Universite du Quebec at Montreal
  • University of Toronto
  • Koebenhavns Universitet
  • Scuola Noramale Superior – di Pisa
  • University of Waseda in Tokyo
  • International Christian University in Tokyo
  • National University of Singapore

Applicants are not required to select a destination until their second year, but must be proficient in the language of instruction. Further, because of the elite nature of this degree, students not maintaining an upper second class set of marks in their first year will be transferred to the traditional BA/BSc Geography.

The BA/BSc Geography (International) requires commitment and achievement, but offers a cosmopolitan experience and credential unparalleled in British geography.
