Two Swansea University postgraduate courses win accreditation from Royal Geographical Society


Two Swansea University courses are among the first postgraduate qualifications to be awarded accreditation by the Royal Geographical Society.

The Society has given its backing to the MSc Environmental Dynamics and Climate Change and MSc Geographic Information and Climate Change.

It launched an undergraduate programme accreditation scheme in 2016, however, this is the first time the Society has accepted applications from master’s degree programmes.

It is a move that aims to recognise good practice in geographical learning and teaching across UK higher education, while supporting continuous quality improvement and promoting good student outcomes across the sector.

Dr Iain Robertson, of the University’s geography department, said: “We are so pleased to be one of the first postgraduate programmes to be accredited by the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG).
