UCAS and school/college higher education exhibitions

We meet more than 200,000 aspiring students each year at UCAS and other schools/college higher education events, fairs and conventions – and receive applications from talented students worldwide.

Coronavirus notice

We are carefully reviewing all of our recruitment events in light of the developing coronavirus outbreak. View the latest updates on measures we are taking.

Currently, all our on and off-campus recruitment activity has been suspended until further notice. We'll monitor the situation as it develops and provide updates in due course.

While we can't currently attend these fairs in person, there are a number of ways in which prospective students – as well as parents, teachers and careers advisers – can get in contact with us and get answers to questions about study opportunities at The University of Manchester.

Meet the Russell Group virtual fair

We are exhibiting at the 'Meet the Russell Group' virtual event on Wednesday, 29 September 2021, 12pm to 7pm (GMT).

This online and interactive experience allows you to explore all 24 Russell Group universities and chat directly with their representatives and ambassadors.

There will be information and videos about each university, downloadable prospectuses and live webinars in a virtual auditorium.

Meet the Russell Group is designed to support Year 13, 12 and 11 students, and is completely free of charge for students, parents and teachers.

We're currently unable to attend off-campus events such as recruitment fairs, but we have a range of online content to help you learn more about the University.

We have a range of virtual resources and pre-recorded talks for pre and post-16 learners available.

We also have a series of Manchester Live webinars for post-16 learners which offer information, advice and guidance on applying to or studying at the University.

You may also like to request a virtual presentation or Q&A session with us and should you wish to request a virtual session we will do our best to accommodate.
