The BSc (Hons) Urban Studies is a three-year degree that focuses on contemporary patterns of urban and regional development, and the processes that contribute to change across cities and their surrounding regions.
The course is rich in both theory and practice-based elements, including fieldwork. It draws on human geography, town planning, environmental studies, politics and sociology, whilst optional units can be taken from across the University, including languages, providing a wide-ranging and intellectually stimulating course.
Manchester is a great place to study urban environments; it was the world's first industrial city and is now a vibrant 21st century metropolis. It is a place of major urban change with plenty of scope to explore urban development pressures and environmental impact.
Fees for entry in 2017 have not yet been set. For entry in 2016 the tuition fees were £9,000 per annum for home/EU students, and are expected to increase slightly for 2017 entry.
