Manchester Metropolitan University

Watch our video of Physical Geography student, Faye has she explains what a field trip for Geography and the Environment students at Manchester Met involves.

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 youll examine modern environmental phenomena and the long-term evolution of the landscape. Youll explore Earths dynamic nature not just looking at how it changes, but also how much it has changed over time and youll investigate human impacts upon it, particularly in terms of past and future climate change.

While you can learn a lot on campus, theres 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 youll have plenty to explore on the doorstep, with four national parks within a couple of hours drive. 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.
