Course description

The BA (Hons) Environmental Management is a three-year degree studying the Earth's natural resources, the way in which human societies interact with them and ways in which they can be sustainably managed. Understanding both scientific principles and relevant policy frameworks is essential if we are to address global environmental challenges including climate change and sustainable development.

The course has a strong focus on practice and you will study environmental processes and their management by combining small group, classroom-based learning with fieldwork.  By the time you graduate, you will have an advanced understanding of environmental systems and processes, and the policies and practices involved in their management. You will also have gained a wide range of practice-based skills which enhance your employability including the design and implementation of ecological surveys, conservation management, environmental appraisal and audit, environmental impact assessment, project management and professional report writing.

Manchester is a great place to study environmental management; it is a major UK city undergoing rapid urban change which provides an ideal base for experiencing the challenge of balancing urban development pressures with their environmental impacts. Manchester is also ideally placed for you to learn about a wide variety of rural environments, including three spectacular National Parks, areas of intensive farming and impressive coastlines. The city and its surrounding environments are important resources for field teaching across your three years of study.


Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2017 will be £9,250, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Future inflationary increases will be applied to each subsequent year of the course, subject to government regulations on fee increases. Tuition fees for international students will be £17,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
