Course description

The BA (Hons) Environmental Management is a three-year degree studying the management of environmental resources and the way in which human societies interact with them. Understanding both scientific principles and relevant policy frameworks is essential if we are to change thinking about the environment and our behaviour towards it.

You will study environmental processes and their management by combining classroom-based learning with fieldwork. The course has a strong focus on practice and provides opportunities for you to develop expertise in areas such as environmental impact assessment, ecological management, project appraisal and audit, and environmental planning.

Manchester is a great place to study environmental management; it is a place of major urban change with plenty of scope to explore urban development pressures and environmental impact. Manchester is surrounded by a wide variety of rural environments, including three spectacular national parks and varied environmental initiatives. The city and its surrounding environments are important resources for field teaching in all three years.


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.
