Due to strikes and the pandemic I have received very little face to face teaching this year I understand this is out of their control, the teaching I did receive was good. However the course is not that enjoyable as I enrolled on a human geography course, being told I can pick modules of my choice human or physical. However you can only pick 1 module the other 5 are set, of these over half are physical which doesn’t interest me. read more

Human Geography at Manchester is really rubbish, there are not a lot of optional modules...they mainly cater for physical geography and there isn't an even split in human and physical modules. The fieldtrip in second year is amazing -i got to go to Cuba! Geography is really clique and not diverse at all, like 95% of the same people in terms of race and class. read more

Environmental Science, BSc FullTime

My course is really interesting since there’s such a variety of things to learn but what I really like is that after first year you can choose what it is that you really enjoy the most and study that in more details in second and third year. I had a few problems with lecturers not responding to emails but you can always ask them in person instead if it’s not urgent. read more
