Program Description:

Manchester, England

We’re proud to call Manchester our home, as are our students; about a quarter of them continue living here after their studies. Indeed, Manchester was voted the best city in the UK to live in – and 51st in the world – in the 2013 Global Liveability Survey.

Manchester’s unique character comes from its pioneering past; this is the place where the Industrial Revolution really took hold. The city grew dramatically in the 19th century on the wealth created by cotton, and its amazing Victorian civic buildings, mills and factories shout: “This is Manchester. We’ve arrived.”

With events, facilities and attractions to suit every lifestyle, Manchester is lively, culturally diverse and easy to enjoy on a student budget. With a reputation for setting the pace in sport, music, culture and industry, most British people regard Manchester as the UK’s second city.

International students play a huge part at The University of Manchester – our student population hails from 154 countries. We’re part of the prestigious Russell Group of universities and our research and teaching quality is recognised across the globe (according to the 2017 Shanghai Jiao Tong Academic Ranking of World Universities, we are the 38th best university in the world, the eighth best in Europe and the sixth best in the UK), but our support for international students is just as important to us. We’ll help you at all stages, from before you apply to when you arrive – and you’ll be supported at all times while you’re here.

Some of the world's most important achievements took place at The University of Manchester. Our story is one of world firsts and brilliant discoveries, with 25 Nobel Prize winners having worked or studied here. Manchester is the birthplace of nuclear physics, where Ernest Rutherford first split the atom. The world’s first stored-program computer was developed here, and Alan Turing pioneered artificial intelligence during his time at the University. Our observatory at Jodrell Bank is home to the iconic Lovell Telescope – the biggest telescope of its type in the world when it was built. Fittingly, Jodrell Bank will be the central control hub for the world’s largest radio telescope, the Square Kilometre Array. The economist Arthur Lewis became the first black professor at a British university when he joined us, and he published his most influential works while at Manchester. And Christabel Pankhurst, a Manchester law graduate unable to enter the profession on account of her sex, became one of the suffragette movement’s most committed campaigners. Isolating the properties of graphene won our scientists Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2010. Lightweight, super-strong and highly conductive, this new wonder-material will transform technologies in every walk of life – from solar power and fuel cells to flat-screen devices and disease detection.

When you study at The University of Manchester, you’ll become a part of this distinguished club, whose collective achievements have shaped the history of the modern world.
