BSc Environmental Geography


BSc Environmental Geography is for those who have already made a clear decision that they want to specialise in understanding the physical geography of relevant environmental processes. As a result of this particular interest, students in their first year take an extra compulsory module that particularly develops these skills (environmental systems and processes).

As well as learning from world-class specialists within the Department, students on this Programme will also be given the opportunity to choose from a range of relevant modules offered by other UCL Departments, including Anthropology, Archaeology, Biology, Earth Sciences or Geomatic Engineering. By the end of the Programme, you will therefore have a particularly strong understanding of environmental processes and how they can be studied through excellent research that spans a range of academic disciplines.

Applications for Undergraduate Programmes at UCL should be made through UCAS (the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service). Applicants currently at school or college will be provided with advice on the process; however, applicants who have left school or who are based outside the United Kingdom may obtain information directly from UCAS.

Please ensure you’ve read the guidelines and entry requirements for the Programme you wish to apply for before submitting your application. You can return to the Undergraduate Programmes page, if you wish to revisit the Programme overview and entry requirements.

      The admissions process of all our programmes is now centralised.

Please therefore do not be concerned if you don't hear back from us immediately.

      What our students say...

      “The development of critical thinking and a mature academic writing style are the most useful skills that I will take away from my degree. I hope to end up in a relevant field, so that the knowledge I take from it will be useful as well, but those skills will be useful in any career. I hope to continue at UCL on the MSc Conservation Programme. Eventually, I would like to work in Environmental Education or research.”
