Welcome to Geography & Tourism

Geography & Tourism is a large learning area and takes several trips every year for fieldwork in either Iceland, Morocco, Costa Rica, southern Italy, Southwest USA, Australia, China, Poland, France and Spain, as well as taking part in UK based residential visits.

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