What is CGeog?
Chartered Geographer (CGeog) is the only internationally recognised professional accreditation awarded to those with competence, experience and professionalism in the use of geographical knowledge, understanding and skills in the workplace.
Recognising geographers’ breadth of expertise, the RGS-IBG awards different post-nominals reflecting Chartered Geographers' specialisms. These include CGeog, CGeog (GIS), CGeog (Econ), CGeog (Geomorph) and CGeog (Teacher).
There are currently about 650 Chartered Geographers, ranging from GI Scientists, conservationists, planners, surveyors, environmental and economic consultants, civil servants, academics, teachers, military personnel and others. Chartered Geographer is an international accreditation, with more than 10% of CGeogs based outside the UK.
There are multiple benefits to gaining Chartered status with CGeog. Listen to other Chartered Geographers talking about their experiences and learn about the recognition, personal development and networking opportunities associated with becoming a CGeog.
