Sri Lanka / Careers

Manchester graduates have an excellent reputation among employers. We are consistently the number one most targeted university by major UK graduate recruiters (The Graduate Market in 2019, High Fliers Research) and we are 5th in the UK and 41st in the world  in the QS Graduate Employability Rankings 2020. The Times and Sunday Times recently recognised the University as ‘the university of the year for graduate employment. Many of our academic Schools offer career-related course units and a number of lectures are delivered by employers who will explain exactly what they are looking for in recruits.

In addition, we maintain links with more than 6,000 UK and global employers. This enables us to ensure teaching and course content are relevant to the needs of industry and commerce so our graduates leave not just with academic knowledge but also with the transferable skills needed to be successful on their chosen career path.

At Manchester we are mindful of the concerns of prospective Sri Lankan students regarding opportunities to improve career prospects by gaining work experience post-graduation in the UK. Opportunities do still exist under the Tier 2 employer-sponsored route and our Careers Service has key information on work visas during and after study.
