Overview

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 of the (Hons) Geography programme from Manchester Metropolitan University, 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.
