Course Summary

We offer PhD supervision across a wide range of human and physical geography topics. Our research engages with applied issues and public policy concerns, as well as more abstract cultural and theoretical issues.

We were recently ranked within the top 30 geography departments in the world (QS World University Rankings by subject). Almost all our research is world-leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework, 2014).

Our staff provide supervision in a range of specialisms. Our research focusses on four research clusters:

Physical geography

Economic geographies

Power, space, politics

Geographies of social change

Many of the research opportunities in geography are interdisciplinary and we are keen to encourage supervision across subject areas.
