Geography Alumni

The Department boasts a large number of successful graduates working in diverse career sectors. Many of our alumni return to the department and faculty to deliver career talks, attend alumni events, and serve as FASS career mentors (FASS Mentorship Programme) or alumni hosts (“My FASS Family” Host Programme).
