Kieran Tang graduated from Geography BA(Hons) in 2018 – here’s what he has to say about his time here:
Studying Geography BA(Hons) at the University of Brighton opened my eyes to a plethora of course content, numerous routes for future career opportunities, the wonderful area of Brighton, and the occasional field trip.
The best aspect of the course is the wealth of different modules you can study, and how you can start to specialise in certain areas. During the course of my degree, I began to shape my learning on planning, the environment, and sustainable development.
I am now a planner at the Department for Levelling Up, Housing, and Communities where I develop, deliver, and monitor policy around developer contributions.
My two tips for success are:
1) to have a good network of support, whether that be friends, family, or simply having a good uni-work/social life balance
2) to find something you’re passionate about – this will make your university career (and life generally!) much easier.
The best thing about the Geography BA(Hons) degree is that there are so many avenues you can take – Town planning, GIS consultants, environmental consultants, teachers – the list goes on!
There aren’t many better places to live and study than Brighton.
