Will I be interviewed and may I visit the department? Decisions on most applicants are made without interview, on the basis of information shown on the UCAS application. Applicants are then invited to attend one of our regular open days, which are held on Wednesdays or Saturdays during the period from February to April. The open day allows applicants and their parents to meet and talk with staﬀ and students informally and to tour the department and the University campus, and you will be able to talk individually with a member of staﬀ whose interests are relevant to the course for which you have applied. Parents can also take part in a questionand-answer session with a member of Geography staﬀ. If you are unable to attend an open day we will be happy to make alternative arrangements so that you can visit the department and speak to a member of staﬀ.
How many places are available on the degree courses? We aim to admit a combined total of approximately 85 students to the BA and BSc Single Honours Geography courses. The BA Human Geography, BSc Physical Geography and Master of Physical Geography courses admit around 35 students. The joint and major/minor courses aim to admit collectively around 10 students. There are therefore expected to be about 130 new students next year in total, although the targets for individual courses can be varied.
What if I apply for a particular geography degree course but then wish to change to a diﬀerent course? BA and BSc Geography have a common ﬁrst year, so there are no problems in switching between the two courses at the end of the ﬁrst year.
