Manchester Access Programme
The Manchester Access Programme (MAP) is The University of Manchester’s flagship widening participation scheme for local Year 12 students.
Applications to MAP 2020 are now closed and will reopen in November 2020.
The Manchester Access Programme aims to support entry to The University of Manchester, or another research intensive university, through the completion of a portfolio of work.
To find out more about the programme (including eligibility, activities and how to apply), and to hear from undergraduate students who completed MAP before coming to university, please watch our information webinar.
