The University

The University of Manchester has a distinguished heritage that started back in 1824. The University is part of the prestigious Russell Group of universities, with outstanding facilities and the widest range of courses. We are highly respected across the globe as a centre of teaching excellence and innovative research. With 25 Nobel prize winners among our current and former staff and students, The University of Manchester has a history of world firsts and brilliant discoveries, from splitting the atom to giving the world graphene.

The first of Britain’s great modern cities, Manchester is a true original; a confident, creative, contemporary city that likes to do things differently.

The city has an international sporting pedigree and one of the richest and most influential arts and music scenes. There are world-class events, venues and attractions to suit every lifestyle, with a lively, culturally diverse city centre that’s easy to enjoy on a student budget.
