What will I learn?

This course allows you to study the interaction between people and their environment and explore the diverse cultural, economic, urban and political dimensions of current global challenges - with your third year spent overseas, anywhere from Europe, the US and Canada, to Australia or South East Asia. Here at The University of Manchester, we've been teaching Geography for over 125 years - after all, where better to study the subject than the world's first industrial city, turned vibrant metropolis? The city will play an important role in your studies, with plenty of resources for fieldwork right on your doorstep. Further afield, international fieldwork will take place in your second year, in destinations like Greece, Amsterdam Hong Kong or the Czech Republic. The wide range of teaching and research interests of our academics - who have an impressive international research reputation - will make it easy for you to be flexible about what, and how, you learn. This allows you the maximum choice to tailor your studies to suit your interests.

BA Geography with International Study graduates has excellent employment prospects. Our graduates have gone on to successful careers in areas including: planning; business development; education; consulting; marketing, media and communications; project management; research. Top employers of our BA Geography graduates include Accenture, HSBC, Manchester City Council, Network Rail, PwC, Sky, the BBC, and the Environment Agency. Our dedicated Geography employability programme will ensure you leave us as a highly employable individual, by developing your expertise in teamwork, communication, research, data analysis, problem solving and time management. You will also gain subject-specific skills such as working with spatial data (GIS), working with archives, undertaking interviews, and a suite of field and laboratory analyses; invaluable skills if you choose to pursue a career directly related to your degree.
