Why study in the UK?

International students can gain much more than a degree in the UK. As well as the opportunity to learn new skills, you can take advantage of a huge choice of universities and the excellent standards of teaching that the UK provides.

Learn valuable skills

You will gain new skills that employers look for when you study for a degree in the UK.

British universities will help you think creatively, work from your own initiative and also as part of a team.

Range and choice

Universities in the UK offer an extremely wide range of courses to choose from.

The University of Manchester offers more degree programmes of study than any other university in the UK and a vast amount of expertise at postgraduate level.

Quality of teaching

British degrees are important to employers because they have a strong emphasis on gaining practical experience in the relevant field.

Admission to the UK's best universities is competitive and class sizes are restricted to ensure that students have access to equipment and have enough time to talk to their lecturers.

UK universities place greater focus on smaller group tutorials and one to one tuition.

Student life

The UK, and particularly Manchester, is a diverse and multicultural place which is home to several thousand international students each year.

Because of this, we have a range of facilities suitable for students of all cultures.

English language learning

English is widely regarded as the language of business, so it is an important part of your future career.

Studying in Manchester helps you learn the language through your study, friends and everyday life.

The University of Manchester also offers a range of specialised English language courses to help improve your skills.
