Campus visits for school and college groups

The University of Manchester continues to monitor developments in relation to COVID-19.

With the further lifting of government restrictions, we’re pleased to welcome your students back onto campus.

Student-led campus tours

During November and December, we’ll be introducing student-led campus tours which will give your students the chance to experience the University first-hand, as well the opportunity to ask questions of our students leading tours. 

Tours will take place outside and group sizes will be limited to 60, with the tour lasting approximately 45 minutes.

Given these are general tours in mixed groups, we're unable to visit individual academic departments. However, access to a small number of buildings open to current students will be permitted including our Learning Commons and Students' Union. 

To view what dates we have available and to book your place, please complete our online booking form.

Self-guided tours

If you're unable to bring your students onto campus on one of these dates, our self-guided tour guide is available to download from the Visit UoM app. Once your students have download the app, they can take a tour remotely from the comfort of their own home, or you can email Chris Farrington to arrange a time to visit campus on a date that suits you for a self-guided tour.

The video below provides an introduction to the Visit UoM app and the self-guided tour guide, and further information is available via Virtual Manchester.


Request a personalised video

In addition, as we're not able to deliver talks on campus to your students at present, you can request a personalised video for your students, subject to staff availability. This will provide a general overview of student life and answer any bespoke questions about the topics your students want to learn more about.

To request a video, or if you have any questions in relation to a booking, please email Chris Farrington.
