Much of geography is international in its outlook, in relation to both teaching and research. The School of Geography is committed to building its links with people and institutions around the world, based on our work in the UK and on our campuses in China (UNNC) and Malaysia (UNM).

We hope that the information presented here will provide access to what we are doing now and help you do what you want to do in the future.
