Facts and figures
The University of Manchester’s facts and figures speak for themselves.
We are the largest single-site university in the UK, with the biggest student community. In total, 25 Nobel Prize winners have worked or studied here.
83% of our research was ranked as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent' by the Research Excellence Framework in 2014.
And more than nine out of ten of our recent graduates go straight into employment or continued studies.
We are ranked 35th in the world, seventh in Europe and fifth in the UK in the 2016 Academic Ranking of World Universities. We were also ranked 87th in the world, 17th in Europe and 4th in the UK in the 2016 Reuters Top 100 Most Innovative Universities.
What's more, we are well underway with the biggest investment in facilities undertaken by any UK university, with £750 million spent so far and a further £1 billion to follow by 2022.
