Engaging with research

At Manchester we seek to inspire the next generation of researchers by bringing secondary and sixth-form students, teachers and university research staff together in projects and activities that bring contemporary research to life for young people.

We were one of 12 universities in the UK to host a School-University Partnership Initiative (SUPI). This Research Councils UK (RCUK) funded scheme provides opportunities for schools to engage with cutting-edge research at universities.

At Manchester we are using this opportunity to work with schools across Greater Manchester to enable young learners to discover what it is like to be a researcher and to develop the necessary skills of inquiry.

As part of our commitment to engage schools in our research, we have partnered with The Brilliant Club, who train and place our doctoral researchers in non-selective state schools and college, providing students in Year 6, right the way up to Year 12, with the knowledge, skills and ambition to be able to gain a place in a leading university.
