Postgraduate Study

Durham Geography is a world-leading centre of research, and our postgraduate community is central to our pursuit and delivery of excellence. Whether conducting original research or gaining experience in research-led teaching, our postgraduates work closely with staff to advance spatially informed knowledge that bridges theory and content and connects policy with practice. We have a vibrant and international community of over a hundred research and taught postgraduates. Our students explore cutting-edge issues across the wide range of issues to which geographers contribute. Postgraduate study at Durham aims to develop a range of high-level research, analytic, and communication skills that are transferable to multiple career paths. Our postgraduates are highly valued employees in government, third sector and private agencies, as well as academia.
