What is the Manchester Access Programme? 

The Manchester Access Programme (MAP) is the University’s central widening participation scheme for local Year 12 students in Greater Manchester. 

We aim to help students who meet specific criteria gain a place at The University of Manchester, or another research-intensive university, through our online and on-campus events, workshops, and an academic assignment. 

* Students who complete MAP are eligible for a reduced offer of up to two grades, except for foundation year courses and Medicine or Dentistry, where must be on the relevant strand.
