The Geography and Environment team within the School of Anthropology and Conservation, are delighted to offer a number of scholarships of £1,000 to students starting either a Human Geography or Environmental Social Sciences degree in September 2021.
Launched in September 2019, the Human Geography BSc is delivered by the academic community across the School. Offered as a three- or four-year (with one-year work placement or year abroad) degree, it is a fusion of major geographic themes such as social and cultural geography, economics and development studies, and environmental and landscape planning.

The longer-established Environmental Social Sciences BA runs alongside Human Geography at Kent and offers a range of perspectives, drawing from subjects as varied as anthropology, politics, economics, philosophy, law, history, literature and the creative arts. The programme can also be taken as a four-year degree including a one-year work placement.
