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!
Thanks to everyone who came to our AGM wine and cheese 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.
Come and join us for our AGM on Monday 7th week at 7pm in Jesus College.
It will be followed with wine and cheese which if free for all members. Join the facebook event.
We look forward to seeing you there!
Sadly our speaker event has had to be cancelled. Hopefully we will see you all next week for our talk from John Sweeney.
Last week we had a fantastic talk from Dr Vicky Pope about “Climatology in the 21st century” and careers in the MET office. Dr Pope presented on topics from climate modelling to advances in technology in the field. An excellent start to this term’s great line-up of speakers. Please click here to see the presentation.
