Viola King Forbes, Geography Subject Rep

Welcome from the Subject Rep

Heya! My name’s Viola, and I’m a second year Geographer at Jesus. (And fives player - it’s very niche, I recommend it). As you’ll know, Geography is a 3 year BA, and there are around 75 of us each year, though it feels much smaller because after the Michaelmas field trip, you’ll basically know everyone on the course - the ensuing mixing in lectures being something I really like about Geography here. You’ll probably have some sort of idea if you’re more of a physical or human Geographer, but keep an open mind because this year will definitely challenge everything you thought about both aspects (seriously don’t miss out on the climatology lectures). At the end of the year, you’ll choose the areas you want to focus on, so also don’t despair if there are some areas you really can’t get on board with. The tutors at Jesus stand out as particularly kind people.

I’m always here for any and every question you have - please don’t hesitate to email me!
