Our academics

Recruiting the best academics means The University of Manchester can offer teaching of the highest quality.

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 new Professor of Public History.

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