Course summary

This Postgraduate Diploma in Geography offers you the opportunity to tailor a postgraduate programme in geography to your own interests and professional needs. You can select modules from the exciting range offered in our Department and bring them together into a bespoke programme.

The modules are designed to respond to the demands of today's workplace and are linked to the cutting-edge research interests of our staff. This programme gives you the opportunity to study with internationally recognised experts who are defining the field with their ground-breaking research. Ours is a lively, stimulating environment in which to study and research.

You will also benefit from our mix of classroom and field-based teaching, including a number of fieldwork opportunities that bring together students to build social and professional networks and develop important skills in data collection and analysis. You will develop the social and technical skills you need for both academic research and the modern workplace.

The Postgraduate Diploma is structured exactly the same as our MSc Geography, but you take fewer modules. It is ideal if you are interested in studying geography at postgraduate level for personal or professional reasons, but don't want to commit to the dissertation element of a full Master's programme. This flexible evening study course allows you to explore your passion for geography and you can go on to complete our MSc Geography, if you wish.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go on to careers in business, environmental management, local government, policy work, and in environmental groups and charities.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
