We often get asked what our academics recommend offer-holders and applicants read before they start at university. Here’s our recommended list.
Mile End Library
It’s the summer and you might be finding yourself with a little time to dive into a good book, whether it’s during some downtime at home, in your local library or even on the beach!
We polled our academic staff to get their recommended reads for Geography, Environmental Science and Global Development students - as well as for alumni and friends of the School. The intention was to provide a list of books that they have found tell important stories about our societies and planet.
This selection below is not a module or programme reading list – if you’re an incoming student you’ll be provided with these when you start your studies – but they are examples of books we recommend. Browse through the recommendations and try to pick one or two that interest you – they should be accessible in a local library or via any good bookshop.
