Thinking of applying for geography at university?
UCAS is now open for applications for courses starting in 2019, but with over 80 UK universities offering more than 1,400 geography-related courses it can seem a little daunting knowing where to start and how to choose.
Don’t worry – we have a range of resources to help guide you in making your decision and applying for the courses you want. From key questions to consider before looking at courses and how to prepare for open days, to advice on writing your personal statement, help with your A Level studies and a directory of geography courses, our website has what you need.
If you’re still wondering if geography is the course for you, remember that undergraduate geography courses are among the highest rated in the annual National Student Satisfaction surveys. And after graduation, geographers experience some of the lowest levels of graduate unemployment as well as a broad range of career opportunities.
So if you’re not sure where to start, take a look at our advice and resources, and follow the conversation on Twitter via #ChooseGeography.
