  • Get involved with the Politics and Geography student societies, make friends, attend beach BBQ’s, conservation volunteering, surf trips and hear from guest speakers
  • You’ll develop an understanding of the central problems of change and uncertainty in contemporary political and ecological systems that will be valued by public, private and third sectors employers
