The importance and support we give to postgraduate research are key reasons Manchester has the impact it has.
Our postgraduate researchers contribute to society through innovative discoveries and new understandings, making you more employable as a result.
At Manchester, we work closely with organisations ranging from government bodies to global businesses, from local health services to registered charities. These connections give our research programmes a greater, more immediate impact.
We turn enthusiasm into achievement and groundbreaking theory into cutting-edge practice. You’ll quickly develop skills, knowledge and experience that will make employers sit up and listen.
We also encourage you to reach your full potential and become the best you can be by participating in our researcher development activities, giving you a unique opportunity to experience true personal and professional growth during your time with us.
Connect with Manchester and the world will connect with you.
