The breadth and depth of our research portfolio is a hallmark of Bristol's world-renowned reputation in Geographical Sciences.
The school is continually ranked among the top UK departments of its kind and we attract some of the largest tranches of funding from national and international research councils.
Our thematic priorities are closely aligned with those of the wider scientific community, and our experts are well-placed to help address some of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.
How our research rates
We are one of only two UK geography departments to have been ranked in the top category in every UK national research assessment exercise that has been held.
Results are from the most recent UK-wide assessment of research quality, conducted by the Higher Education Funding Council for England.
