As a major provider of STEM subjects at degree level, we recognise their importance to the UK's skills base.

We’re passionate about working with teachers and career advisers to inspire local school pupils with the exciting experiences and advantages of studying science.

Girls in STEM

The University of Manchester is committed to championing science, technology, engineering and maths as study and career pathways for girls and we run a number of events throughout the year with this specific aim. These events link school pupils with staff and students at the University to spark conversations between current female scientists and the STEM stars of the future.

STEM Ambassadors

STEM Ambassadors are volunteers with experience in a wide range of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) jobs and disciplines from across the UK. With more than 250 University of Manchester staff and student STEM Ambassadors, logging more than 4,000 hours of their time, the University is the biggest single organisational provider of STEM Ambassadors in Greater Manchester.


In collaboration with The Great Science Share for Schools, ScienceX is a free, interactive festival of exploration and experiments which allows children to discover the fun behind science and engineering. Drawing on expertise from across the University, the event is particularly aimed at those who would be unlikely to seek out a science event and may know little about universities.
