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 41st in the world, eighth in Europe and fifth in the UK in the 2015 Shanghai Jiao Tong World Ranking.

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.
