September 2021

Teaching

Teaching is through a combination of:

  • lectures
  • tutorials
  • workshops
  • statistics sessions
  • fieldwork
  • projects with outside organisations
  • presentations

We also offer an annual series of industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.

For Geography, fieldwork in a variety of environments forms a key element of your degree. We make use of Dundee city itself and other nearby locations and landscapes for local day trips. We also take you further afield into the Scottish Highlands, Spain, or Iceland for week-long residential field trips.

Assessment

Assessments can be in the form of:

  • essays
  • problem-based exercises
  • case studies
  • presentations
  • group projects
  • exams

All of these will provide the basis for your final grade. You will be expected to complete many coursework assignments individually, but some assignments will be based on you working in small groups with other students.
