Important: Programme accreditation is voluntary and optional. This means that some UK geography programmes aren’t accredited even if they meet the criteria, or they may be accredited by other organisations. There are many excellent degree programmes delivered by UK universities which do not have accreditation. Below is a directory of three or four year undergraduate programmes and specialist master's programmes currently accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
