Physical geography offers the chance to understand, investigate and model the physical interactions and processes that influence our environment and landscape. Study physical geography at Manchester Met and you’ll examine modern environmental phenomena and the long-term evolution of the landscape. You’ll explore Earth’s dynamic nature – not just looking at how it changes, but also how much it has changed over time – and you’ll investigate human impacts upon it, particularly in terms of past and future climate change. While you can learn a lot on campus, there’s no substitute for seeing the physical landscape for yourself. As part of our programme, we regularly engage in fieldwork, from day-long trips to residential trips across the UK and overseas. Being in Manchester also means you’ll have plenty to explore on the doorstep, with four national parks within a couple of hours’ drive. FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Fieldwork opportunities in the UK and overseas, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
- We offer free Carbon Literacy training in person and online to our students, to build their understanding of sustainability and to enhance their employability.
- Our practical facilities include a dedicated instrumentation laboratory with an inductively coupled plasma (ICP) spectrometer and ion chromatograph (IC) for environmental measurements, a GIS laboratory and a field store with the equipment for sampling and assessing a variety of environments.
- Our four-year study abroad route gives you the opportunity to study overseas during your third year, subject to national and international travel restrictions.
