Not good, geography didn't appeal to me but to those who are more interested in geography and that can motivate themselves to read for it then this is the perfect degree. Those who are looking to do a single geography (ie. Physical/human) should so a single part so you aren't forced to do them both!
Potential to be an interesting course, but some very obscure concepts that don’t seem to be related to geography. Feels very much like a name for a topic which is basically just biology/chemistry/physics/geology in physical geography, and sociology/economics/politics in human geography. Doesn’t feel like it’s own discipline, rather an over arching collection of disciplines under the name “geography”
Feels like you're taking up tutors time, not very helpful. The course content is good but feel like they give too much reading, and not enough in the lectures. Careers fairs are always science and technology, very few directly related to Geography. Value for money is awful. Lectures are only 50 minutes long, and at present, only have 7 'hours' a week, less than 1 full school day. Feels like we're paying for nothing. Only given £1 printing credit, very few copies of core texts in the library, not always online and university bookshop sells books at extortionate prices
Some lecturers don't teach their material in an interesting way and therefore it is extremely boring sometimes, good amount of contact hours, some modules are very boring and not sure how to use them to get a job. One of my tutors last year was amazing
Very well taught. The first year you sort of have to bear with all the core modules and try to find out what aspects of the course interest you most in order to really tailor your degree in second and third year. There is a lot of scope for doing this. And by having a major/minor degree scheme you can dip your toe in another subject.
