Welcome to the Department of Geography and Environmental Management

Geography and environmental management

The Department of Geography and Environmental Management at UWE Bristol is regularly commended for its teaching expertise and research success; you will be immersed in a learning experience that is supportive and inspiring.

You will hear about the many challenges affecting our world today, and have the opportunity to think about the solutions that can be practised in response. You will be able to work in the field, gain insight from leading practitioners, and take advantage of our established links with regional, national and international partners.

Bristol has considerable expertise in the environment, planning and civil engineering sectors. Bristol achieved Europe’s Green Capital with a range of events and activities supported by staff and students from the department.

We are a department with over 60 academic staff and research staff, more than 500 undergraduate students and a number of masters and PhD students who contribute to the university's vibrant postgraduate community.

Several of our courses have professional accreditation through such bodies as the Institution of Environmental Sciences (IES), Institution of Civil Engineers (ICE) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI).

These web pages will introduce you to the people who work and study in Geography and Environmental Management here at UWE Bristol, to the opportunities for studying with us and to our wide range of national and international knowledge exchange and research activities. Keep up to date with the department’s activities via our twitter page.

I look forward to meeting you in person if you choose to visit one of our Open Days.

Dr David Case
Head of Department
