Old Collegian Andrew Douglas-Clifford

Andrew Douglas-Clifford has always been interested in how the world works, which is why Geography was a stand out subject choice, he says.

“I love how it is able to cover quite a wide range of different topics and issues about the human and natural worlds, then bring them together into the big picture, especially on issues such as climate change.”

Andrew works as a cartographer and geospatial analyst at an environmental/engineering consultancy, which keeps him busy with lots of varied and interesting projects. He first became interested in cartography, which is the art and science of designing maps, during his studies at the University of Canterbury, where he completed a Bachelor of Science in Geography, and a Master in Geographic Information Science (GIS). “A couple of my maps gained popular attention online, which turned a hobby into a side business, designing and selling art prints of maps.”

Highlights of Andrew’s studies at St Andrew’s include Geography trips, and a Social Sciences trip to Vietnam, which made learning more tangible. He also enjoyed learning from Geography teacher, Kerry Larby, who was so passionate about the subject, he said. “Studying Geography at St Andrew’s definitely fostered my skills and interest to take it further.”
