Course Summary

This Postgraduate Diploma offers you the opportunity to tailor a postgraduate programme in geography to your own interests and professional needs. You can select modules from the exciting range offered in our Department and bring them together into a bespoke programme. It is ideal if you are interested in studying geography at postgraduate level for personal or professional reasons, but don't want to commit to the dissertation element of a full Master's programme.

Assessment is an integral part of your university studies and usually consists of a combination of coursework and examinations, although this will vary from course to course - on some of our courses, assessment is entirely by coursework.

Graduates go on to careers in business, environmental management, local government, policy work, and in environmental groups and charities. Possible professions include geographical information systems officer, nature conservation officer, policy researcher or environmental consultant. This degree can also be useful in becoming a planning and development surveyor or town planner, a market researcher or tourism officer.
