The University of Manchester welcomes students from Oman. We currently have 74 Omani students studying with us and close to 1,000 students from across the Middle East.
Given our experience in hosting students from the Middle East, we are confident that we are well equipped to meet the specific academic, religious and dietary needs of students coming from this region.
Manchester is a vibrant multicultural city with a large Muslim population.
There are prayer rooms available across campus and a number of mosques located near the University and student areas.
Many of our restaurants serve a selection of halal-certified meals and sandwiches, and many front line staff have completed training on how to deliver halal food.
