Geography at Leicester is distinctive for its high-quality international research and teaching. Our thriving research culture is shared by staff and students alike, and we take our students on field courses around the world where they experience research-led teaching in action.

Outside the lecture theatre we get to know our students through personal tutoring, small group teaching and fieldwork, and students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, including a dedicated student study area.

We are part of the School of Geography, Geology and the Environment.
