Welcome information and timetables

A three-week Welcome and Induction period commences in the week beginning 5 October 2020.

Weeks commencing 5 and 12 October 2020 will involve University and Students’ Union activities, and the week commencing 19 October 2020 will focus on course-specific activities.

All of these activities will be online/virtual, with the blend of synchronous and asynchronous activities allowing you to revisit material in your own time, and ask questions and meet members of staff in real-time.

Welcome timetables

Make sure you familiarise yourself with your course Welcome timetable.

You should also frequently check Blackboard and your University email address for the latest information and accessible Welcome timetables.

It is expected that students will attend all of their course's induction events.

University-level Welcome events can be booked onto by following the link at the bottom of this page. Please ensure that any events you book onto don't clash with any course-specific induction events.

First-year part-time students are expected to attend as many of the induction sessions detailed in the induction timetables above as possible. If you are unable to attend these sessions, please email your pgt.seed@manchester.ac.uk.

Support

During Welcome please contact your Programme Administrator Asim Ali with any queries from Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm.

Teaching will begin in the week commencing Monday, 26 October 2020.

It is important that academic staff meet with you to advise you before you select your optional course units. As part of your Welcome timetable, you will get the opportunity to meet with academic staff.

After you have all the relevant information, you must select your optional course units. Optional course unit selection should be completed by the end of Welcome but you are able to change your options up to the end of the second week of teaching (Friday, 6 November 2020).

Part-time study

Part-time courses in Planning and Environmental Management are not day-release courses . However, we do try as far as possible to cluster classes. The complexity of timetabling multiple, overlapping postgraduate taught courses to satisfy students on modular courses across the University means that we cannot guarantee that classes will be timetabled on a single day.

Late registrations

After this date, you will be considered a late arrival and may be required to provide evidence to support the reason for your lateness. Your Programme Director and Programme Administrator will then consider whether it is appropriate to approve your late registration.

Transition to postgraduate studies

As you embark on a new phase of academic study there are a number of resources which can help as you begin your postgraduate course.

Course handbooks

The course handbook for new students studying one of the below courses will be available soon.

  • MSc Environmental Impact Assessment and Management
  • MSc Global Urban Development and Planning
  • MSc Planning
  • MSc Real Estate Asset Management
  • MSc Real Estate Development
  • MSc Urban Design and International Planning
