- We have five Geography tutors, giving a good ratio of tutors to students
- Our tutors cover a wide range of topics in both human and physical geography
- We take teaching seriously: two of our tutors have recently won University of Oxford Teaching Excellence awards
- Keble geographers achieve consistently high marks in examinations, enabling them to pursue further study and a range of successful careers
- In the 2010 final examinations, 40% of our third years achieved First Class degrees (the average for all colleges was 25%)
- Keble students have claimed top place in university-wide final exams four times in the last six years
- Our geographers undertake an impressive array of dissertation topics: in 2009, a Keble student claimed the prize for best dissertation
- Keble admits at least 8 Geography undergraduates each year, making it one of the largest Geography colleges in the university
- The high intake allows for a vibrant geography community within the college – good geography socials, dinners, and plenty of people suffering a jointly timed essay crisis!
- As a big college (around 400 undergrads) Keble has a lot to offer, wherever your interests may lie; the college also has an impressive array of on-site facilities
- The College guarantees accommodation (mostly en-suite / shared bathroom between two) for at least the first two years, and almost everyone can live in during their third year
- Keble is conveniently located a few minutes’ walk from the Geography department (where lectures are held), is directly opposite the main library and is close to the centre of Oxford
- Keble Geography tutors arrange several events in the course of the year for Geography students. A recent example is the Parliamentary seminar in the House of Commons on high speed rail which many of the first year Geographers attended (see Blog for more details). Keble and the Keble Association support these events financially – as they are also able to do in the case of the departmentally organised field trips.
