Campus

The Department of Geography and International Development is on the University’s historic Parkgate Road Campus, just a short walk from Chester city centre. Here students benefit from excellent support from teaching staff and modern teaching facilities, including specialist laboratories. Parkgate Road has a wide range of social spaces (e.g. SU building, cafés, bar, green spaces), recreational facilities (e.g. swimming pool, gym, sports hall) and accommodation options.

Careers / Employment

In 2016-17, 94% of our students graduated into employment or further study. Our graduates work in professions across a range of sectors in the UK and abroad, including environmental management, town planning, housing and regeneration, renewable energy, sustainability, international development and hazard/risk management. Independent analysis from the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS) places geography among the top degree subjects for graduate earnings in the UK.
