The University welcomes applications from Colombian students. In 2016/17 there were 37 Colombians enrolled at the University, mainly on postgraduate courses.
These pages are designed to give you an overview of admissions requirements, key contacts and information about visits to Colombia by University of Manchester staff. Please feel free to contact us with any specific questions you have so that we can help you find all of the information you need.

Other miscellaneous information
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 students from Colombia 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.
