Learning through research

At Manchester our teaching is informed by outstanding research at all levels. Our learning environment allows students to develop and use core research skills, enabling them to have an impact beyond their academic study.

That's why, on many of our undergraduate courses, you'll be given the chance to get involved in research activities as part of a structured and supported learning process. Opportunities include:

  • making the most of material found in the extensive collections of the University’s museum and art gallery as well as the vast holdings of the historic John Rylands Library;
  • engaging with the latest scientific and technological advances;
  • analysing large official data sets;
  • performing literature reviews to uncover new perspectives.

Engaging with these opportunities can equip you with the skills to help you take the next step – whether that's into your new career or as a continuing student.
