Geography degrees awarded RGS accreditation

ENV is delighted that our Geography degrees (BA and BSc) have been awarded accreditation from Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).

“RGS accreditation is highly valued by graduate employers as well as by current and prospective students alike so we are really pleased that our degrees have been recognised,” said Dr Gill Seyfang, Course Director, BA Geography.

The RGS accreditation scheme allows the university to receive an independent check that the knowledge, skills and other attributes expected of high quality graduates are being delivered. 

During the accreditation process, the courses content and delivery were assessed by a panel of academics and professional geographers. They noted the excellent choice of modules, strong teaching and learning focus among staff and excellent evidence of practical learning and innovative teaching.

The following courses have now been accredited by RGS: BA GeographyBA Geography with a Year in IndustryBSc Geography; and BSc Geography with a Year in Industry.
