Geography at Manchester Metropolitan University - UCAS

Course summary

Study geography at Manchester Met and you’ll begin with a good grounding in earth surface processes and landform development alongside a critical understanding of 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. There is the opportunity to take a four-year route to broaden your horizons by spending a year working in industry on placement or studying overseas in your third 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.
