(Virtual) open day events

Get a real sense of what life is like in the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences by joining us for our virtual events - featuring discussions with our staff and opportunities to connect with our students.

Right now we're unable to welcome you onto our campus to show you around and answer your questions about studying with us, but that doesn't mean you can't connect with us online. We're holding virtual events, and making available the recordings in case you can't be there for the live sessions.

Our Virtual Open Day took place on Saturday 3rd October 2020. If you missed the live event, you can now watch the sessions on demand. Earth and Environmental Sciences hosted the following subject sessions:

Earth and Environmental Sciences - Courses and Careers 

This session will introduce you to our degrees in Earth and Environmental Sciences, and the types of careers our graduates move into. If you enjoy the natural sciences, come and find out how we combine physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics and geology into the study of our earth and its environment.

Earth and Environmental Sciences - Student Experience 

In this session you will meet students from the Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences. Find out more about why they chose to study with us, their experience on our courses, and living in Manchester.

Undergraduate events

Our next undergraduate virtual open days will take place on Wednesday, 6 to Saturday, 9 October 2021

  • Live sessions on student life, accommodation, funding and more.
  • Saturday 9th is dedicated to subjects and is your chance to find out more about our 2022 undergraduate courses.

Registration is open to book your sessions.

Visit days

You may be invited to a visit day after submitting your application. These days include a one-to-one chat with one of our academics, and are intended to be as relaxed as possible - they are great for discovering more about student life in Manchester and the course you have chosen. You also get the chance to meet our fantastic current students.

Right now we don't know if this will be on campus, but as soon as we do, so will you. Our admissions department will contact you with more information.

Postgraduate events

Our latest virtual open week for postgraduate students took place in November 2020.

If you didn't manage to make it, or missed sessions you wanted to attend, we have some recordings you can still view here:
