Geography at Southampton is one of Britain's leading centres for geographical research, with excellent facilities, a strong publication record, and a thriving research culture.
The Graduate School currently has around 50 full-time and part-time students from the UK and overseas and is funded by research councils and other sources. The Graduate School captures all that’s good about research: a mixture of stimulating intellectual activity and enjoyable social interaction. Our most recent postgraduate feedback found that 94 per cent of respondents would recommend Geography for doing research.
Student and staff research is organised into five research groups. Candidates register initially for a MPhil degree, which then converts to a PhD following a satisfactory upgrade report. Each MPhil and PhD student receives formal research training and detailed tuition tailored to their own needs.
