Pollution affects the health of us all; whether it is in the air we breathe, the water we drink or in the land upon which we live. Have you ever wondered about the sources of pollution? Or how pollution is monitored to try and protect us from detrimental exposure?
This joint physical geography and environmental sciences discover day looks at the topic of pollution and how our students investigate air, water and soil pollution. We’ll also look at one of the most significant environmental debates in modern times: nuclear science.
The day will be a hands-on experience starting with brief introductory talks on physical geography and environmental sciences, followed by practical tasks in the University’s state-of-the-art laboratories. Plus, you’ll get the chance to quiz our current students on what they enjoy most about their course and the type of careers they hope to enter.
Manchester is a great place to study physical geography and environmental sciences; as well as having industry-standard laboratory facilities, the city itself is an excellent case study of balancing urban development with environmental impact.
