Student at Graduation

What a degree from Manchester means

A Manchester degree shows that you have achieved a standard of excellence at one of the world’s most recognised universities – but it does much more than that.

Skills that employers need

A degree from Manchester sets you up for a lifetime of success. The critical thinking skills you’ll develop, along with our award-winning careers support, will make you stand out from the crowd.

What’s more, many of our taught courses are built with the needs of industry and business in mind, ensuring you acquire the skills, knowledge and experience necessary to flourish within your chosen career. Many courses allow you to broaden your horizons by taking course units from disciplines outside of your degree, and you could also showcase unique skills to employers by working towards one of our Manchester Awards.

A pioneering teaching and learning environment

You’ll learn from leading teachers and scholars who are acknowledged international experts in their respective fields. You’ll be at the heart of a dynamic research-led culture, where teaching is driven by cutting-edge thinking and technology.

We’ll give you online learning tools to complement our high-quality, face-to-face teaching through innovative and interactive exercises, simulations and problem-based activities. You’ll be able to use technology-rich learning spaces across the campus, including access to the widest range of digital resources of any UK university.

Opportunities to improve society

We’ll help you to make a difference to society. Our Manchester Leadership Programme and the University College for Interdisciplinary Learning enable students to think beyond academia and towards their impact as citizens.

You can also help the local community by getting involved with Student Action, a volunteering organisation led by students for students. You'll see another side of Manchester and get to appreciate the city and its people on a whole new level.
