Institute of Geography



Welcome to Geography, part of the School of GeoSciences at the University of Edinburgh. We aim to combine high quality research with adventurous teaching. Students benefit from being part of a research environment recognised for its excellence in the 2008 national Research Assessment Exercise. We pride ourselves on quality research output, with the majority of our research identified as world-leading/internationally recognised.

Our research is closely integrated with our teaching, providing a wide range of stimulating courses, led by researchers at the forefront of their fields.

We have a vibrant postgraduate community undertaking a full range of degree programmes including PhD, MSc by Research and an MSc in Geographical Information Science. In the Scottish tradition, Geography offers broad, interdisciplinary undergraduate degree programmes, available both through the College of Science and Engineering (BSc) and the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (MA). Our students are drawn from the United Kingdom, the European Union, North America and many other countries.
