Geography is firmly established as a separate discipline within British higher education, a position founded on its strength in the country's school system throughout the twentieth century. This position has enabled the discipline to prosper and it has been at the core of many intellectual developments. With changes in the nature of universities, however, that position has increasingly to be rethought.
