The Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA) has published a new edition of the Subject Benchmark Statement for Geography – the document which defines the standards expected of geography graduates in the UK. The QAA is the independent body which sets and maintains standards across UK higher education.
The lightly revised document, which replaces the 2014 edition, adds requirements for geography students to make ‘informed judgements based on the evidence available’ and places new emphasis on promoting ‘ethical behaviour’. Visualisations are also added as a key means of analysing data.
Although following the statement is not a regulated requirement for higher education providers in the UK, the document plays an important role in describing the nature of the subject, and forms much of the criteria for the Society’s Geography Programme Accreditation Scheme.
The new document is available to download from the QAA website.
