About the Course
Approximately 90 undergraduates are admitted to read Geography at Oxford each year and it is one of the biggest departments in the country, with the School of Geography and the Environment as one of four sister institutions within the Oxford University Centre for the Environment. The others are:
- Environmental Change Institute (http://www.eci.ox.ac.uk/)
- Transport Studies Unit (http://www.tsu.ox.ac.uk/)
- Smith School for Enterprise and the Environment (http://www.smithschool.ox.ac.uk/)
Academics from all the sister units are involved in teaching and research supervision of undergraduates. The OUCE building, in the University Science Area on South Parks Road, contains lecture rooms, laboratories, computing facilities and tutors' offices, and is within a few a minutes’ walk of the Radcliffe Science Library and the Bodleian Library
Jesus College normally admits 8 geographers annually. Students are admitted to read for a degree in Geography purely on the basis of their ability and potential. We were a pioneer Oxford college in awarding Scholarships and Exhibitions in Geography, and since that time over 60 years ago, the subject has retained a firm place in the College
