What Geography topics are available? 

From the architecture of great ports and cities across the globe, to climate change and the severe impacts it’s having on people and their communities, join one of our Geography courses and explore how the world works, and how humans, plants and animals have adapted to live within it.  

There are courses on the beautiful British countryside, as well as landscapes including deserts, forests and arctic wildernesses that dominate far-flung continents and exotic locations. Farming and how to develop more resilient ecosystems regularly feature high on the agenda, whilst natural resources and the race against time to protect them is also featured throughout the year.

History: Nottingham's Inner Suburbs

Nottingham became a City in 1877. It was a hugely significant milestone in its development but how did the city’s growth impact surrounding areas, the Inner Suburbs? This course will explore how once green fields and tiny hamlets were transformed into industrial suburbs that grew into their own bustling communities, with distinctive characters and personalities. How did Forest Fields come into existence? What was the impact of the 20th century on Hyson Green? How did Radford evolve into an industrial community? What created these new communities and how do their landscapes reflect their histories?
