Graduation of our first new Masters programmes

On Thursday 13 January 2011 the first group of students from our new suite of Masters programmes graduated.

Over 50 students were awarded Masters degrees from seven different courses spanning the breadth of Geography: from Polar & Alpine Change through Environmental Analysis of Terrestrial Systems, Social & Spatial Inequalities, International Development to Social & Cultural Geography.

Almost half of these students had studied courses with an International Development theme in Planning or Health, spending time on external placements. Across the range of courses, around 10 graduates had come from outside the United Kingdom and around a quarter achieved Distinctions.

In September we welcomed almost 70 new students for nine different courses, including new courses in Arid Land Studies and Environmental Change & International Development.
