Providing high-quality education
How you will learn
We are committed to providing a high-quality learning environment.
Below, you can see the ways we offer this at The University of Manchester.
Our interactive lectures are usually delivered to your whole cohort in person, on campus, and supported by seminars, group work, and online activities, such as self-assessment quizzes to consolidate your learning.
Seminars are usually smaller group sessions led by a member of staff, which give you the opportunity to discuss topics covered in your lectures in depth.
This could include working with other students to discuss a case, prepare and deliver a presentation, or to write a report.
Group work is important to consolidate and deepen your knowledge as well as develop important transferable skills.
Research with real-world impact
Learn from researchers with a passion for improving education.
You will be taught by staff who are doing research in areas including the impact of poverty on educational success and the links between mental health on attainment.
