Geography

What on Earth is going on? Geography is concerned with many aspects of the world in which we live. Geographers study the physical and social processes that shape our world, and places within it. Geography fits well with many other subjects in the physical sciences, social sciences and humanities.

Foundation Geography introduces a selection of key geographical ideas, encourages you to explore, interpret and think critically about the world, and assists you to develop appropriate strategies and academic skills to prepare you for degree study.
