Our Postgraduate Diploma Secondary Education (QTS) geography course is recognised as one of the strongest in the country. It benefits from its supportive partnerships with geography mentors in a variety of schools in the West Midlands. It offers opportunities to learn in a range of settings and includes a week of residential fieldwork with children. The course will encourage you to combine the theory and practice of geographical education, whilst also developing your professional understanding and competence as a geography teacher.

Degrees in Environmental Science, Geology, Geosciences, etc. may beconsidered, but the university must be certain that such degrees contain at least 50% geography. You will be expected to show a broad base of geographical knowledge (both human and physical) at the interview.
