To help you settle in during your first few days in Manchester we offer a comprehensive programme of orientation events that will provide you with valuable information, as well as giving you the opportunity to meet other students.

The programme is organised by staff from the International Office, but it also involves student helpers from the University – our Student Ambassadors – who will be available to support you and answer any questions you may have.

Our next Orientation Programme will be running from 20 to 24 January. By attending, you will find out about starting your life and studies at Manchester.  

The programme will give you practical advice and introduce you to the University and the city of Manchester. You will get the opportunity to meet other new students as well as students who have been here for some time.

You will find that some sessions are mandatory for students coming to us through one of our International Programmes Office schemes – ERASMUS, Study Abroad, Worldwide Exchange and Science Without Borders – and there are some events for which you will need to pick up a ticket in advance.

If you have any questions or concerns please email us at Alternatively, please feel free to ask any questions you may have on our Facebook or Twitter pages.
