Why study? presentations

Our Why study? subject presentations offer young people an insight into the benefits of studying some of our most interesting and popular subjects.

We have presentations available for KS2 through to KS5. These presentations help young people understand:

  • how those courses are taught at Manchester;
  • what additional activities and benefits students can gain from studying at Manchester;
  • broader information, advice and guidance (IAG) about skills development and employability for subject areas.

Unfortunately we're unable to offer live virtual or in-person delivery of our Why study? presentations during this academic year (2021/22), but we have a large number pre-recorded and presented by recent graduates and PhD students available within the Activities for the classroom section on our website. There you’ll find Why study? videos about Medicine, Architecture, History, Biological Sciences, Music, Linguistics, Politics, Physics and more.
