The University of Manchester is Britain's largest single-site university with a proud history of achievement and an ambitious agenda for the future.
It has a long history of hosting visiting scholars and students from China because Manchester has a large Chinese community and, to many students, is a 'home away from home'.
Social and cultural events are regularly held by the International Society and Student Association. The Consulate General in Manchester can also provide students with support during their time in the UK.

The University of Manchester has worked closely with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in awarding scholarships to Chinese students to study one-year taught masters degrees.
For the last five years tripartite agreements have existed with the China Scholarship Council and the Ministry of Finance, and more than 80 students have been awarded the Chevening Scholarship through these arrangements.
Centre for Chinese Studies and the Confucius Institute
The University's engagement with China is supported by the award to Manchester by the Chinese government of one of the first Confucius Institutes to be established in the world.
The Manchester Confucius Institute will involve a partnership with Beijing Normal University and its objectives are to facilitate the dissemination of Chinese linguistics and cultural awareness and to encourage and promote cultural and scholarly exchange between China and Manchester and the rest of the North West of England.
The official opening of the Centre for Chinese Studies and of the Confucius Institute will take place in October 2006 following the arrival of the first students in Chinese studies.
To celebrate this event, the University is staging a China Festival in partnership with the City Council and the Confucius Institute.

Other miscellaneous information
Chinese student employability
The University of Manchester is the largest research intensive university in the UK, committed to setting a revolutionary agenda of collaboration and excellence.
The University has a growing international community of students who are attracted by its credentials. Students from the Chinese mainland, Hong Kong and Taiwan form the largest group within this community.
One of the key factors in their decision to study at the University is the provision of services which aim to increase their employability once they've completed their studies.
The University of Manchester Careers Service is developing leading edge programmes and services designed to give international students a competitive advantage.
We are also committed to working with local and national UK employers, as well as employers overseas, by putting them in touch with talented individuals who will assist them in achieving their strategic goals.
The University's Careers Service, in collaboration with UK Trade and Investment and Chamberlink, have organised a professional international networking event.
This event will bring together talented postgraduates from the Chinese mainland, Taiwan and Hong Kong with businesses interested in trading in mainland China and Taiwan.
