Accredited by the Royal Geographical Society, this foundation course in Geography is designed for students who do not meet the admissions criteria for direct entry to the BSc (Hons) Geography degree. You’ll start by completing a foundation year, which provides well structured support, allowing you to develop your scientific skills and knowledge. Our Geography degree emphasises issues that shape people and places in a global society. You'll investigate critical issues that are challenging the 21st century, from the local to global scale and analyse the relationship between human and non-human environments, and how to sustain their delicate balance. You'll explore how the environment aﬀects society, its economy and culture, and in turn, how we adapt and transform that environment. Field courses ensure a rich experiential degree. Previous fieldwork locations have included Sicily, Greece, New York, Hong Kong, Uganda and South Africa. All our Geography courses are based at Glyntaff. USW Glyntaff is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the relaxed atmosphere and beautiful views.
