Star Lecture Series

The Star Lecture Series has been developed by the University to allow teachers and pupils access to exciting curriculum resources delivered by some of our leading academic staff. Filmed and recorded at the University, these lectures cover topic areas on the national curriculum and exam syllabuses, link students' studies to current research and offer an insight into university study.

The series aims to cover a variety of different subject areas and age ranges, from Year 9 to sixth form students.

On the panel to the left you can find links to all of the Star Lectures that have already been filmed, along with accompanying information such as suggested further reading.

Our next Star Lectures will take place during the next academic year and details will be available here when they have been confirmed. 

YouTube channel

Our YouTube channel has a number of videos about The University of Manchester. Edited versions of the Star Lecture by Professor Brian Cox and other lectures from the series are available there for use by learners and teachers.
