UCL Geographers win more national dissertation prizes

All final-year undergraduate students in UCL Geography complete a dissertation based on their own research.

Various academic societies and research groups award national prizes for the best of these submitted from universities across the UK.

Success in these competitions is therefore a national standard for the highest research quality.
