Careers of Geography Graduates

Field72% of Aberdeen Geography graduates find employment within 6 months, while a further 22% go on to further study.

Recent graduates work, for example, in conservation and planning, various government agencies, business and commerce, and some go on to undertake research involving technical skills such as GIS and remote sensing. An Honours degree in Geography can also lead on to a higher degree, and a significant proportion of our graduates study for Masters and PhD degrees.
