Introduction

In 2016/17 there were 68 students from Bangladesh enrolled with the University. Subject areas being studied include business, management, engineering, life sciences and development.

With academic roots stretching back to 1824, The University of Manchester is a hugely respected global university. An unprecedented £1 billion is currently being invested into outstanding research and teaching facilities; this is a University with vision and ambition, which aims to become one of the world's top 25 providers of education and research by 2020.

Our campus includes more than 10,500 students from 150 countries outside the UK and is at the heart of the city of Manchester, a vibrant and multicultural European metropolis.

The University of Manchester is one of the UK's most popular destinations for students from Bangladesh.

The following fields of study are particularly popular with our Bangladeshi students:

  • Business and management
  • Economics
  • Many fields of engineering
  • Computer science
  • Life sciences

World-leading research

We are one of the highest ranked universities in the UK in terms of research power, with 83% of research activity judged to be 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

The University’s reputation as a world-class teaching and research university is confirmed through our ranking in the influential Academic Ranking of World Universities Survey conducted by Shanghai Jiao-Tong University. In the 2015 survey we were placed 41st in the world, eighth in Europe and fifth in the UK.

Employability

Manchester graduates have an excellent reputation among employers. Unsurprisingly, we are therefore consistently among the most targeted universities by major graduate recruiters (High Fliers Research). Many of our academic Schools offer career-related course units and a number of lectures are delivered by employers who will explain exactly what they are looking for in recruits.

In addition, we maintain links with more than 6,000 UK and global employers. This enables us to ensure teaching and course content are relevant to the needs of industry and commerce so our graduates leave not just with academic knowledge but also with the transferable skills needed to be successful on their chosen career path.

At Manchester we are mindful of the concerns of prospective Bangladeshi students regarding opportunities to improve career prospects by gaining work experience post-graduation in the UK. Opportunities do still exist under the Tier 2 employer-sponsored route and our Careers Service has key information on work visas during and after study.
