Course overview

Contemporary geographical enquiry provides distinctive insights into the natural processes that shape our physical landscape and the societal forces that mould the societies in which we live. At Shrewsbury, we use traditional and modern geographical data enquiry methods/technologies to ensure that knowledge and skills gained are relevant to today’s employers.

Why Study Geography with us?

At UCS we focus on the integration and application of human and physical geographies to explore contemporary people-environment challenges at local and global levels. We maximise the opportunities presented by the local environmental context to bring geography to life: emphasis on physical and human geographical perspectives allows for a broader understanding of the role, importance and application of geography in the everyday.

Training in applications of Geographical Information Systems (GIS) is integral to the degree, as are distinctive experiential learning opportunities provided through engagement with businesses, organisations and professionals in the community, and through fieldwork in the UK and overseas.



Guildhall is nestled on the banks of the River Severn, and only a short walk from the winding streets of Shrewsbury.
First constructed in 2004, and renovated for the arrival of University Centre Shrewsbury in 2015, the Guildhall building is used as the main centre for teaching and learning and offers fresh, modern and open spaces for students to enjoy.
The building boasts brand-new computer suites, lecture and seminar rooms, open-plan laboratories, a spacious library, as well as a student common room, lounge, fitness suite, courtyard, and on-site café.
