At Manchester, we’re committed to sharing knowledge and wisdom for the benefit of society, creating opportunity and transforming lives. At the heart of this is making sure that talented, capable students can benefit from a university education, regardless of their background and that all identities are represented at The University of Manchester.

Manchester Access Programme (MAP) is the University’s central widening participation scheme for local Year 12 students in Greater Manchester. Through this programme, we aim to help students who meet specific academic and background criteria achieve entry to The University of Manchester, or another research-intensive university, through participation in our online events and workshops and completion of an academic assignment.

Applications for MAP 2021 are now closed.
