Our academics

We focus on attracting the world’s best academics to deliver teaching of the highest quality.

At The University of Manchester, you’ll be taught by experts who are recognised internationally as being at the forefront of their subject – and who incorporate the very latest thinking and discoveries directly into our courses and research programmes.

We have more Nobel laureates on our academic staff than any other UK university. You’ll benefit from the experience of renowned academics, such as Brian Cox, star of the BBC’s science programming, author Jeanette Winterson at the Centre for New Writing, and Michael Wood, our Professor of Public History.

And we’re led by Vice-Chancellor Dame Nancy Rothwell, famed for her work on stroke and brain injury.

Teaching leadership and development

Our pioneering Institute of Teaching and Learning drives and celebrates the quality of our teaching, and has been established to support quality, embed innovative methods of delivery, and reward excellence.

Teachers are also encouraged in their development through Advance HE-accredited provision, such as the National Teaching Fellows, New Academics Programme and the Leadership in Education Awards Programme.
