Abstract:

The UK's Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education has recently required British geography to produce a national benchmark statement which sets out the key characteristics of degree-level programmes in geography and outlines the standards which students are expected to achieve. This document will be of direct relevance to all UK geographers and no doubt of considerable interest also to those working in other countries. In addition to presenting in full the benchmark document, this collection of JGHE papers includes an introduction to the purpose of the benchmark and how it was prepared. Three personal critiques are also included from academic geographers working in Scotland, the USA and Australia.

Keywords: BENCHMARK; GEOGRAPHY; QUALITY ASSURANCE
