Coronavirus and your Manchester journey
We're working to give you the best possible welcome to Manchester this year. In your first semester, you'll benefit from online lectures, allowing you to work at your own pace, where and when suits you best.
We're putting together an extended two-week welcome and induction programme, to welcome you to Manchester in a phased and safe way.
Online lectures in Semester 1 will allow you to work at your own pace, where and when suits you best. This will be supported by small group face-to-face teaching.

Your learning experience
In September we’ll be using a blended learning format to give you the best possible learning experience.
Hear from Ella, a final year History and Sociology student, about her experience of blended learning during her final term, what skills it helped her develop and how clubs and societies went virtual.
We've moved our lectures online for Semester 1 which means you can work through them at a time and location that suits you.
You will still have face-to-face contact with your tutors through seminars, practicals and tutorials.
For 200 years, Manchester’s ideas have changed the world. Our exceptional students advance their education, knowledge and wisdom for the good of society, and we support them to make a difference.
Your accommodation is still guaranteed, even if you arrive late. And if you need to quarantine, you’ll get two weeks free accommodation if you’re moving into halls.
