Course summary

Study geography at Manchester Met and you’ll begin with a good grounding in earth surface processes and landform development alongside society, culture, place and space. With a wide range of options in the later years of your geography degree, you can explore the issues and areas that interest you most. While we have excellent teaching facilities on campus, we know that some of the most powerful lessons are learned outside the classroom. So, you’ll have ample opportunity to get involved in fieldwork trips around the UK and overseas, helping you develop and refine your practical skills. And, if you take the four-year route, you can spend a year either working on a placement or studying overseas before returning for your final year. Along the way, you’ll explore key theories and concepts – and how they apply to geographical phenomena – while developing practical skills and techniques through field and laboratory work. FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

  • Our four-year study abroad route gives you the opportunity to study overseas during your third year in North America, Australia or in Europe, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
  • Alternatively, the four-year placement route allows you to spend your third year on an employment placement, enhancing your career opportunities on graduation.
  • Fieldwork opportunities in the UK or overseas are available during each year of the degree, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
  • Our laboratories and facilities are state-of-the-art and will give you first-hand experience of a wide range of manual and instrumental lab skills and techniques.
  • We offer free Carbon Literacy training in person and online to our students, to build their understanding of sustainability and to enhance their employability.
