Graduate Research Programmes
UCL Geography provides a world-class environment for research students to develop their projects.
UCL has been ranked the number one university in the UK for its research environment, with the Department consistently rated among the best Geography departments in the country. Currently ranked third for research strength, and with its research environment and impact rated as internationally excellent, the Department provides an outstanding setting for undertaking MPhil/PhD training and research.
We welcome applications across human, physical and environmental geography, particularly where proposed projects complement our existing areas of research strength.
You can work towards an MPhil or PhD in geography, environmental science and related areas of interdisciplinary inquiry, supported by seminars, training and a dedicated supervisory team of expert academics. The Department attracts prestigious scholarships and studentships for graduate research and enables students to conduct fieldwork around the world.
You can also work towards an MPhil/PhD in Geography (Practice-Related), which allows students to develop a thesis alongside a body of creative work, which together make an original contribution to knowledge. Download further information about this programme here.
We provide a supportive environment that enables students to complete their projects within the timescales envisaged by UCL and funding bodies. You will be supported to develop your project, to upgrade to PhD status and to realise your research at PhD level. In addition to working with your supervisory team, research training is supported by a dedicated seminar in term two of year one.
