Campus visits for school and college groups

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

We hope to be in a position to open our campus again soon, so your students will be able to join us and experience the atmosphere on campus first-hand, as well as speak to our staff and students. When it's safe to do so, we’ll update our website and provide further information on how you can arrange a visit.

In the meantime, we're offering a range of virtual resources, as well as providing platforms for your students to interact and engage with the University. We've pre-recorded talks for relevant age groups, which you can show your students at a convenient time.

Campus visits for overseas students

If you would like to bring a group of international students onto campus when it reopens, please email, where a member of staff from our International Team can discuss the possibility of your students visiting the University.

Live events

We also have some options for your students to interact with us and build on the video content.

  • Live events – we can arrange a Unibuddy Live event for your students to engage with staff and students in a one-hour live text chat. Students will be required to create individual accounts, before signing up to attend a live chat, where they can ask questions about student life, entry requirements, accommodation, etc. Teachers and advisors can also take part and ask questions. The University will require four weeks’ notice prior to agreeing a date to deliver an event of this nature.
  • Pre-recorded FAQs – we can pre-record a Zoom call with staff and ambassadors based on questions you collect and submit from your students. Once recorded, we can then share the link of the recording for you to playback.

If you're interested in arranging a Unibuddy Live event, or would like to submit questions to receive a recording, please email:, to discuss.

Other virtual experiences

In addition we have a range of virtual experiences and resources which your students may find useful prior to campus reopening.
