Welcome to Geography & Tourism

Geography & Tourism is a large learning area and covers various industries. Students taking Environmental Science or Geography will do fieldwork in destinations such as Iceland, Morocco, Costa Rica, southern Italy, southwest USA, Australia, China, Poland, France and Spain, as well as taking part in UK based residential visits. Our Travel & Tourism students will also benefit from trips to travel providers, including major airlines, as well as a programme of enrichment qualifications.

Geography is one of the Russell Group's facilitating subjects and is widely regarded for its academic rigour.
