Manchester graduates have an excellent reputation among employers. Not surprisingly, therefore, we are one of the most targeted universities by major graduate recruiters (The Graduate Market in 2016, High Fliers Research) and 35th in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2017. 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 7,000 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.
