I think that this course really was what I was expecting for. I really recommend it to anyone into geography and environmental sciences, but who would also like to gain some knowledge, skills and understanding of management, business and economics concepts and practices. From the 2nd year the content became very customizable and I feel that it equiped me with everything I wanted and needed. My personal tutor, Allan, has been amazing in his role. read more

Because of the pandemic, I haven't had the full experience of a first year student as most things have been online. Lecturers are decent, but I get a bit distracted when lectures are online (which is all my problem - the university is doing a good job). In first year you can't choose your modules which is the only reason I didn't give course content a higher score, but next year when I can pick my modules I know I'll enjoy the content a lot more. My personal tutor, who is the main point of contact if I have any issues, has been extremely approachable and helpful, which has definitely helped with my wellbeing this year. When things move back in person I'm sure that the experience will be much more enjoyable and I'll really feel like a uni student. read more

My course offered so much variety and I would definitely recommend it. In first year you have a great selection of compulsory modules and then by the time you get to second and third year you know more about the areas that interest you most and have more choice over the modules you study. The field trips on offer are amazing and you have the option to do a placement year which is a great way of getting experience to help secure a graduate job when you finish. It is a course that sets you up for a whole host of careers and my friends have all gone on to achieve great things. read more

My course as a whole is more demanding as it combines two disciplines. However it is also more beneficial for me, as, for a student with a strong interest in Geography, however the desire to work within business, it gives me the exposure to each and the general business minded skills needed for the future. Additionally, I would highly recommend doing a Sandwich course as it gives you exposure to a professional environment before graduating. Not only making you more employable, but also giving you an idea of exactly what you want from a job coming out of university (if you haven't already been offered a job through your placement!) read more

Enjoyable and interesting course, gaining transferable skills that I feel can confidently put to use as a graduate. When you do the maths (price per contact hour) though it is hard to see where the £9000 goes, especially when we don't get notes or lecture slides printed for us (something other courses benefit from and represents a significant weekly outgoing that I have to budget for). read more
