Please note: Lunch is not provided at this event but refreshments are provided throughout the day. Parents and teachers are welcome to attend this event and places are on a first-come-first-served basis.

Bridging the gap

Bridging the gap provides sixth form students the experience of what studying geography at university level is like. With four different seminars, led by our Geography Ambassadors, the day aims to replicate a ‘university geography’ experience, with each session directly based around a topic being studied at university.
The session groups are small (maximum of 10 students) to give students a ‘seminar’ type experience, providing them with the opportunity to be more involved in the session. Places are available on a first-come, first-served basis and limited to 40 places for each day.

School Members Lecture - Beyond Borders: Changing geographies of migration and asylum

An opportunity for our school members to experience our popular lecture series.

Recent years have seen significant changes in the management of migration across the world. From the renewed growth of border building and securitisation, to the mass displacements of the Syrian conflict and the on going refugee crisis, migration has become a critical issue of our age. But what can geographers tell us about these rapid changes in migration? This lecture explores the skills that geographers can bring to the issue of migration.

Date: Wednesday 28 June 2017
Venue: RGS-IBG, London
Timings: 5.15pm-6.30pm (doors open at 4.30pm)
Speaker: Dr Jonathan Darling from the University of Manchester
Cost: Free to School Members

Booking details
Booking for this event is now open. These events are no longer ticketed. Instead, a list of booked names will be monitored on the door on arrival. Places can be requested by emailing Claire at c.brown@rgs.org. We are asking schools to please be reasonable with the number of places they request for these free lectures. In order to prevent block booking by schools that subsequently do not use their full booking allocation thus preventing other schools from attending, we will be closely monitoring the use of booked places by each school. If we find that your school has booked far more places than it uses on the day, we may be forced to limit your school's booking allocation at future lectures. Young Geographer Members may also book a place to attend these lectures.
