Campus visits for school and college groups 2019/20
We offer school and college groups from the UK (including the Isle of Man, Guernsey and Jersey) the opportunity to visit campus over the course of the academic year to get a taste of university life.
These visits give your students the opportunity to experience first-hand the atmosphere of our campus. We offer visits for groups ranging from Years 7–12.
We have scheduled dates taking place across the year, which feature the following:
- a welcome presentation – featuring aspects to consider when choosing what and where to study, student life and information about The University of Manchester;
- a student ambassador Q and A panel – where your group has the opportunity to quiz current students about student life and the process of applying to university;
- a campus tour;
- an optional Art of Application session – this focuses on the UCAS application process, in particular what to include in a personal statement.
Our visits start at 10.30am, with the campus tour finishing at approximately 12.30pm. If you would like your group to take part in the optional Art of Application session, this will finish at 1.30pm. The dates we have scheduled for the 2019/20 academic year are listed below:
- Tuesday, 30 June
- Thursday, 2 July
- Tuesday, 7 July
- Wednesday, 8 July
- Thursday, 9 July
However, we do recognise that the above dates may not suit everyone so during the months of February, March and April we can look into the possibility of arranging a visit for your students, subject to availability.
If you would like to enquire about an ad-hoc booking, please email firstname.lastname@example.org in advance of completing the booking form, to discuss a possible visit.
Alongside the UCAS Manchester Exhibition taking place on Tuesday, 3 and Wednesday, 4 March 2020, we will be delivering taster visits on campus to complement your trip to Manchester.
These taster visits will take place on both dates from 2pm to 3.30pm.
Both sessions on each day will feature the following:
- a brief presentation to provide an overview of the University;
- student ambassador Q and A panel;
- campus tour.
If you would like to bring a group of Year 11 students onto campus, please email email@example.com to discuss the possibility of your students visiting the University.
We have dates scheduled in November and February for Year 9 and 10 students, and in May for Year 8 students. These visits provide an introduction to university life, with a focus on how university differs from school, the opportunities to get involved with different clubs and societies, budgeting, entry requirements for courses and student life in general.
