Course summary

Research overview

A leading centre of postgraduate teaching and research, the School of Geography has internationally recognised strengths across the discipline.

Our PhD programme enables you to conduct original research across a wide range of geographical research areas.

Our students are an integral part of our wider research and teaching community. Individual projects may cut across research areas, for example, in fields such as environmental management. You will also be supported by two academic supervisors, who may be drawn from more than one of our research groups.

Careers

Many of our PhD students continue in the academic field, either at the University of Nottingham or elsewhere. Other recent graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as the Environment Agency, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Experian, the Forestry Commission, and business and professional service firms.
