Geography BA/BSc(Hons): Links with other organisations

How we work with external organisations

Staff are involved in active research so illustrate teaching with up-to-date, relevant experience.

Local authorities, government organisations and community partnerships

We have built links with many external organisations, particularly local authorities including:

  • Kingston First
  • Royal Borough of Kingston
  • Kingston Chamber of Commerce
  • Kingston Racial Equality Council
  • Kingston Food Bank
  • Surbiton Community Brain
  • London Metropolitan Police
  • Greater London Authority
  • Fulham Football Club
  • Fulham Foundation
  • South London Partnership
  • Hogsmill River Catchment Partnership
  • Zoological Society of London.

These organisations provide us with expert guest lecturers and also facilitate on site visits. This provides students with perspective on contemporary challenges in society and on the way in which geographical knowledge can usefully be applied in real world contexts. Engagement with these organisations also provides students with insights into areas of employability.
