Post-16 learners

We want to attract talented students from all backgrounds and run a range of widening participation schemes to help us do so.

We're proud to perform towards the top of the Russell Group in the number and proportion of students entering the University from areas of low participation in higher education and from lower socio-economic backgrounds combined.

We support students across the student lifecycle from Year 12 students on the Manchester Access Programme to contextual offer making, impartial applications advice and financial support for our low income, asylum seeker and care experienced students.
