School of Environment and Development
The School of Environment and Development (SED) is an internationally recognized centre of excellence for research and teaching focusing on the problematic relationships between society, economy and the environment.
The School was created in 2004 as part of the new University of Manchester, building on the strengths and the experience in teaching and research of pre-existing units such as the School of Geography (over 100 years of history), the School of Planning (created in 1952), the Institute for Development Policy and Management (founded in 1958), and the Manchester School of Architecture (created in 1996 as a joint venture between the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University).
The School is housed in the state-of-the-art Arthur Lewis Building, built in 2007 and located at the heart of the University Campus. The building is equipped with dedicated postgraduate PC clusters, study space, modern research laboratories and a coffee bar, and the John Rylands Library, one of the largest of its kind in the UK, is just a short walk away.
The School of Environment and Development aims to attract the best students to study in Manchester. Our programmes are long established and build on excellence in both teaching and research within the School. Our alumni are highly employable, qualified in their subject areas and proficient in the skills employers are seeking.
The School offers 9 undergraduate programmes (BA and BSc) and 30 postgraduate masters programmes (MA and MSc). SED is also an increasingly popular choice for PhD students, thanks to the School’s four world-class doctoral programmes in Architecture, Geography, Planning and Human and Physical Geography.
