Academic guest lecture series
The University of Manchester is home to world-class experts in a wide range of academic fields. In order to share our expertise and enrich your curriculum, we offer subject-specific lectures to students in local schools and colleges in a range of academic disciplines.
Unfortunately we're unable to offer live virtual or in-person delivery of our Academic Guest lectures during this academic year (2021/22).
You can find a number of pre-recorded lectures on topics such as Black History, Shakespeare, Graphene, Stem Cell Research, and the US Civil Rights movement in our Star Lecture Series and our Scarisbrick Hall School online lecture series.
Colleagues in our Faculty of Biology, Medicine and Health have recorded a special lecture – Bugs ‘n’ Drugs: An overview of antimicrobial resistance – for KS 3/4. Presented by Dr David Allison, it provides a fascinating exploration of antibiotics and resistance on the everyday person in society.
Star Lecture Series
Our Star Lecture Series has been developed to allow teachers and pupils access to exciting curriculum resources, delivered by some of our leading academic staff.
Scarisbrick Hall School online lecture series
During 2020, some of our academic staff contributed to an online lecture series in collaboration with Scarisbrick Hall School.
