The Society has recently approved the accreditation or reaccreditation of 55 geography programmes at 14 higher education institutions across the UK.
As part of the accreditation process, undergraduate programmes were assessed in line with the new QAA Subject Benchmark Statement for Geography. The statement defines what can be expected of a graduate in terms of the knowledge, understanding, skills and approaches they have gained through their degree programme.
Programmes at the following institutions were recently accredited:
Queen's University Belfast
University of Bristol
University of Glasgow
University of Leeds
University of Liverpool
University of Newcastle
University of Nottingham
University of Plymouth
University of the West of England, Bristol
York St John University
The Chair of the Accreditation Review Panel, Robert Francis commented:
“We’re delighted to be able to accredit these programmes. It has been fantastic to see the work going on at geography departments across the country. The review panel were impressed by the work institutions are carrying out on issues such as sustainability, equity, diversity, and inclusion, and decolonising the curriculum. We were also encouraged by the emphasis on careers and employability in many geography programmes.”

Publication of our academic journals is moving to online-only from 2024.
Every year our medals and awards recognise geographers who have made a significant contribution to geographical research, fieldwork, teaching, policymaking, and public engagement.
According to new research published today in the Society’s journal, The Geographical Journal, England and Wales are more ethnically diverse – and less segregated – than ever before.
The Society has published a new report on the contributions of geographers and geography in shaping the law and legal proceedings.
