Postgraduate research degrees

The School of Geography had 75% of our research output rated as world-leading or internationally excellent in the latest Research Excellence Framework and the school attracts students from a range of countries, creating a thriving international research student community.

Individual postgraduate research projects may be based within one of our research themes or cross-over between research groups, and students may have supervisors drawn from more than one group.

You are welcome to contact potential supervisors directly to discuss your research ideas.
