Course Summary

PhD Physical Geography will allow you to benefit from the supervision of world-leading academics that have very strong reputations for research quality. The University of Manchester is one of the best places in the world to study physical geography, and our department has a global reputation for its research and teaching. In the UK's most recent Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014), 94% of our outputs were considered internationally recognised, with an exceptionally high proportion (65%) judged to be internationally excellent or world-leading. As a postgraduate researcher, you'll have access to a dedicated Researcher Development Team who will support your professional development throughout your PhD journey and beyond.

You will be assigned to a specific research grouping that complements your research interests and have access to a variety of interdisciplinary research institutes. Our working environments are often spacious and open-plan, giving you plenty of opportunities to communicate with colleagues and staff within the School, and you will have your own desk space as well as access to our fantastic range of libraries on campus. All of our academic supervisors are research active and will support you to work on challenging research problems and develop rigorous, creative and original research. Our researcher development programme will enable you to become more aware of your developing researcher identity, equipping you with the skills you need during your PhD and prepare you to integrate into the researcher community.
