Geography leads to a great variety of degree courses. Anything is possible as Geography has a wide range of transferable skills. This means that Geographers are highly employable and career prospects are good. Many geographers have continued to study the subject at university but others have followed related degree courses. These include Geography with Management, Environmental Management, Environmental Geology, Geology, Tourism, Urban and Rural Planning, Transport Management, Coastal and Estuarine Studies, Meteorology, Landscape Architecture and Cartography to name but a few! The department also has links with the Environment Agency which offers a foundation degree with a substantial bursary and the chance of employment at the end of the course.
