Current Applicants

Taught by world-class researchers, our BA/BSc Programmes give students a fresh perspective on the world around them and a thorough grounding in current geography research. They will learn the importance of geographical methods in tackling some of the biggest challenges facing the world today and they leave us with a highly valuable set of project design and critical thinking skills.

        Whilst most of our students opt to embark on our longstanding BA/BSc Geography Programme, there are also options for those who are clear at the start about where their personal geographical interests lie.

        The core structure of all of our Programmes is modelled on that of the BA/BSc Geography, but if you decide to specialise from the start, course course structure is amended so that you can focus more fully on what really interests you.

        The UCL Geography Experience

        • The University has a longstanding tradition of undertaking the very best geography research; we were home to the first ever UK geography professor, and continue to be one of the largest and most dynamic UK geography departments;
        • You’ll be working with a group of scholars with a very diverse range of specialisms and who are all recognised as leaders in their field of research. We have consistently been ranked in the top 10 Geography Departments worldwide;
        • We offer a wide range of optional courses, and our excellent staff-student ratio makes for plenty of individual choice and scope for personal supervision;
        • We have a very active and supportive undergraduate ‘GeogSoc’ which, in combination with regular staff contact and varied fieldwork opportunities, will mean you’ll soon feel part of our research community;
        • Based in the heart of London, our Bloomsbury campus provides a picturesque and peaceful setting for study, with its many squares and gardens, whilst also being in great central location for access to all the city has to offer.
        • Because of our London location and the valuable set of transferable skills that they develop with us, our graduates have proved particularly good at securing top positions in a range of sectors after they leave us.


        What our students have to say...

        “A big factor in my decision to study Geography at UCL was the world-leading research. Their research often forms the basis for teaching and it is fascinating to learn the very latest in the area that you choose to specialise in. The academics at UCL really care about their research and I think this makes the learning experience much more fascinating and enjoyable.”
