Careers and employment
Our Geography Masters programmes are developed in consultation with employers to ensure their relevance to industry, and in turn, to ensure you gain the skills and knowledge required to help secure a graduate level position on completion.
By matching requirements with employer needs, University of Exeter Geography postgraduates are sought after by employers.
You will also be ideally placed if you wish to progress to doctoral research, for example, PhD study, in social or life sciences.
In addition to the College's Employability Officer, Career Zone gives access to a wealth of business contacts, support and training as well as the opportunity to meet potential employers at our regular Careers Fairs.
Students on the MSc Sustainable Development benefit from placements and independent work-based learning which can lead to careers in business and sustainability, planning for sustainability and community regeneration and development.
Below are some examples of initial jobs undertaken by Geography postgraduates who studied with us in 2011/12.
