University of Manchester

The University of Manchester has a rich heritage of accomplishing feats of global significance for 190 years, from inventing the modern computer to giving the world graphene – the two-dimensional ‘wonder-material’ that is one atom thick, but 200 times stronger than steel.

Part of the Russell Group, Manchester enjoys an international reputation for pioneering research and innovation. We work closely with organisations ranging from government bodies to global businesses, from local health services to registered charities to deliver courses informed by the latest expertise and research programmes that have greater, immediate effect.

At Manchester, you will find the broadest range of options outside of your studies for developing your interests and broadening your experience, including outstanding sports facilities, skills-development programmes and mentoring. You could make a difference through volunteering opportunities offered by the Students’ Union and through our dedicated community engagement team. We’ll also support you if you want to take part in or start up a social enterprise.
