Physical Geography with Study Abroad - Manchester Metropolitan University

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 history – and you’ll investigate human impact, 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. So we build regular chances for fieldwork into the programme, from day-long trips around the North West, to residential trips across the UK and overseas. Being in Manchester also means you’ll have plenty to explore on the doorstep, with five national parks within a couple of hours’ drive. And you can even spend a year developing your professional skills working on a placement, or broadening your horizons by studying abroad with the four-year route. **FEATURES AND BENEFITS:** - Manchester Metropolitan was ranked as the UK's greenest university in the 2017 People and Planet University League. - The four-year study abroad route gives you the opportunity to study overseas during your third year in North America, Australia or Europe. - Alternatively, the four-year sandwich route allows you to spend your third year on an employment placement, enhancing your career opportunities on graduation. - 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 wide range of environments. - The Department has been awarded Green Hero Status for Excellence in Environmental Education and Practice from the Green Organisation. - Residential fieldwork opportunities in the UK or overseas are available during each year of the degree. - 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. - Read our Geography and the Environment student blogs: mmu.ac.uk/geogenvblog
