About

A welcome from Professor Cherith Moses, Head of Geography

We hope that you will enjoy reading about our work, our staff and our students. We are a friendly and welcoming department, so you won’t get lost in the crowd, but our research has national and international significance, and our graduates are now working with some of the country’s leading environmental organisations.

We are based in the Geosciences building which provides modern teaching, learning and research facilities for all our students.

We want our students to enjoy their time at Edge Hill University and we aim to provide a supportive learning environment, with a strong community spirit. Our experienced, highly approachable and knowledgeable staff are committed to helping students achieve their full potential.

Fieldwork and laboratory work are some of the most beneficial and enjoyable aspects of our degree programmes. We offer a range of opportunities for fieldwork both in the UK and abroad, depending on the degree programme you are following.

A core element of all our degrees is the emphasis on preparing students for the world of work. Our programmes are recognised by employers for the wide range of ‘job-relevant’ skills and knowledge that they provide. Our annual careers and employability week provides a bridge between academic study and career planning and management, and helps students work towards achieving their career aspirations.

Our degrees are equally attractive to students from either an arts/humanities or science background or a mixture of both. Whatever your choice, we are sure you will enjoy studying at Edge Hill University.
