Open days and study fairs
If you want to find out what studying for a master's or another postgraduate taught degree at Manchester is like, come to an open day or one of the many study fairs we attend worldwide.
Coronavirus and visits
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the University is yet to make a decision about whether to run the postgraduate open days in autumn 2020. We'll post further information here as soon as we know more.
Open days on campus
Our postgraduate taught study open days give you the chance to visit our outstanding teaching and learning facilities and meet academics and current students in your subject area. You’ll also get information on funding, particularly the master's loan.
Our 2020 postgraduate taught study open day will be confirmed early next year.
