Skills Training in your Geography Degree

We view skills and employment training as essential to your future career success.

All Geography courses at the University of Aberdeen contain core elements of skills and employment training. By studying Geography you will develop a wide range of transferable skills, including critical thinking, research design, data analysis, proficiency in IT, and the ability to communicate effectively. Geographers also acquire specialist knowledge of cultural, political, economic and environmental issues, and the ability to evaluate these from different perspectives. Employers value these attributes.

Throughout your degree we also run seminars which provide you with opportunities to meet, listen to and learn from the successes of recently graduated students.
