Studies by the Royal Geographical Society show that Geography degrees are an excellent basis for developing the transferable skills and knowledge that many employers value. You will be skilled in communication, problem solving, analysis and interpretation.

Many of our graduates pursue Geography-related careers in development or environmental consultancies, government, tourism, planning and teaching.

While you may not become a politician (though many of our students over the years have: as MPs, MSPs and MEPs), your degree will open up a range of opportunities in both the private and public sectors.

In other words, the skills - personal, verbal and written - that you will acquire can be easily transferred to many walks of life. We have produced leading journalists, civil servants, diplomats - and even the occasional secret agent!
