In physical geography, the research groups have a strong quantitative science emphasis, encompassing computationally-intensive numerical modelling, advanced analytical laboratory techniques, worldwide field campaigns, and satellite observation; they collaborate with key agencies such as the British Antarctic Survey, NASA, and the Hadley Centre; in human geography, the research groups are characterised by socio-spatial theorisation of the contemporary urban experience and evidence-based migration policy research; they work closely with key institutions such as UNESCO, the International Organisation for Migration, and the UK and Welsh Assembly governments; students belong to 1 or more of the following research groups: environmental dynamics, glaciology, and global environmental modelling and Earth observation, migration, boundaries, and identities; social theory and urban space.
Normally a minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent in geography or a related field, or an appropriate Master's degree with merit. English language requirement IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each component) or a Swansea University recognised equivalent.
