We are a student-run society at the University of Oxford, open to anyone with an interest in Geography. We run social and career events, and have a wide range of speaker events supplementary to departmental talks.

Anyone affiliated with Oxford University can become a member; this is a fantastic way of meeting people across the University, and seeing your fellow Geographers in a setting other than the lecture theatre!

Come along to our talk this evening

Come and hear Professor Heather Viles speak in Brasenose College Lecture Room 11 at 6pm on 3rd February on the topic of “Strictly come geography: why not strut your physical geography stuff?”

Join us as we welcome Head of School, Prof Heather Viles. Physical geography is more important than ever, but its popularity amongst undergraduates has slumped. This talk will bust some myths and encourage discussion on how to bridge the gap. There will also be wine provided after the talk and an opportunity to ask Prof Viles any questions you have.
