About Geography with International Study at University of Manchester, School of Environment, Education and Development, University of Manchester, Faculty of Humanities

Manchester is a great place to study Geography. It was the world's first industrial city and is now a vibrant 21 st century metropolis. Set between three National Parks the city and its environment are an important resource for field teaching in all years. In addition, all students benefit from a heavily subsidised overseas fieldcourse in their second year, and spend the third year of their studies abroad.


With 93% student satisfaction (National Student Survey, 2012), BA Geography with International Study in Manchester is amongst the highest rated courses for this subject in the UK. The Geography department has also been rated 6th in the UK and 8 th globally. These rankings are based on reputation with employers and academics, so you can be confident that a degree at Manchester will bring you into contact with the cutting edge of geographical knowledge and equip you with the skills that employers value most.


The Geography programme at Manchester gives you maximum choice, with the opportunity to take options from across Physical and Human Geography. This allows you to tailor the course choosing from more than fifteen options in your fourth year.

As one of last years graduates commented `It truly has been a life changing 3 years in the best possible way and if I had to choose again I would pick Geography at the University of Manchester every time.'
