Geography with International Study at University of Manchester - UCAS

Course summary

BA Geography with International Study allows you to study the interaction between people and their environment, and explore the diverse cultural, economic, urban, and political dimensions of current global challenges - with your third year spent overseas, anywhere from Europe, the US and Canada, to Australia or South East Asia. Here at The University of Manchester, we've been teaching Geography for more than 125 years - after all, where better to study the subject than this rapidly changing metropolis, with its surrounding national parks and stretching coastlines? The city will play an important role in your studies, with plenty of resources for fieldwork right on your doorstep. The wide range of teaching and research interests of our academics - who have an impressive international research reputation - will make it easy for you to be flexible about what, and how, you learn. This allows you the maximum choice to tailor your studies to suit your interests. Not sure if you're a human or physical geographer just yet? Don't worry - our course allows you to study both human and physical geography in your first year, before specialising to study for a BA or a BSc later in your course. You don't need to apply to both courses either - apply for just one via UCAS, and you'll be allowed to switch after beginning your course.
