Event description

Description

Royal Holloway, University of London is coming to Manchester! On the 3rd July 2017, we will be holding a 'Discovering the World' event in the Conference Centre at the Museum of Science and Industry. The day aims to provide students with a taste of what it is like to study Geography, Earth Sciences (Geology) or Politics and International Relations at University level.

Students and Teachers who book their free tickets for the Geography strand of the 'Discovering the World' day will have the opportunity to take part in a combination of Geography taster lectures and workshops in break-out rooms. These lectures and workshops will be delivered by academics from Royal Holloway University's Geography Department, one of the UK's top 10 Geography Departments (Guardian 2016).

The topics covered for Geography will include:

  • Climate change

  • Biogeography and ecosystem change

  • Volcanic hazards

  • Urban Geographies and the Salford Media City

  • Global Inequality and the Development Gap

  • Migration

In addition, our Schools Liaison team will be providing two 30 minute information, advice and guidance sessions on:

  • 'Why University?' and 'Life in the South-East as a University of London student'

  • 'Applying through UCAS and writing your personal statement'
