Postgraduate Research Projects

Postgraduate Research Student Projects

On this page you can find out more about the postgraduate research projects currently being undertaken in the School of Geography. The key to a successful programme is to find a research subject that you are passionate about, and a supervisory team that have expertise in this area.

The first thing that anyone who is interested in undertaking research with us should do is directly contact a member of staff who works in an area that they are interested in. We have wide areas of expertise in the School spanning climate change, river and coastal processes and pollution, waterborne diseases, biogeography, environmental behaviour, rural economy, social and political geography, development studies, and more.
