INTO Manchester in partnership with The University of Manchester

Introduction

The city for international students

Manchester is one of the liveliest cities in Europe – which is why it's home to more international students than any other region of the UK.

The location of both your INTO Study Centre and nearby halls of residence means you'll always be close to the excitement

And as an INTO student, you'll also be able to access The University of Manchester's range of unrivalled academic and leisure facilities.

"University of the Year"

As you'd expect from the largest international student recruiter in the UK, The University of Manchester offers unrivalled investment in cutting-edge facilities for research and learning.

£750 million has been invested since 2004, which has helped The University of Manchester be named 'University of the Year' twice in the last ten years (Sunday Times and the Times Higher Education Supplement).

Looking forward, the University is investing a further £1 billion by 2022. There'll be a new engineering campus, new centres for law and business, a major refurbishment of the library, an extension to the Students' Union building, a new medical school, and major improvements to the area around campus.

There really has never been a better time for you to study at The University of Manchester!

Global recognition as a university of choice

The University of Manchester is home to more than 12,000 international students from over 150 countries. This popularity is due to the global recognition of its high-quality education and research.

As a member of the Russell Group of universities - made up of 24 of the UK's leading research universities - the University employs 5,900 academic and research staff, many of who are leaders in their field.

With such a high calibre of real-world learning, it's no wonder that 25 Nobel Prize winners have studied or worked at the University.

One of the UK's top research institutions

From the birth of the modern computer and the first splitting of the atom to pioneering work with the new 'wonder material' Graphene, innovative research is at the very heart of The University of Manchester's ethos.

The research will underpin your degree learning, and you'll be taught by staff at the forefront of their subject. Many undergraduate programmes offer you the chance to contribute to research within your school of study. This will help develop essential transferable skills that can be carried forward into your workplace or postgraduate studies.

The University is one of the UK's top research institutions - with the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) rating 83% of research activity as 'world-leading' or 'internationally excellent', and annually attracts more than £247 million in funding for external research.

Life outside the classroom

As an international student, you can live as part of a vibrant student community in our purpose-built halls of residence. Or why not experience real British life in a family homestay? Both options offer a secure, comfortable environment in which to grow – both academically and as a person.

The INTO Manchester Welcome Desk is available for any questions you may have, and you can also call a 24-hour telephone number in case of an emergency.

The social side of university life

When it comes to the social side of university life, The University of Manchester is the perfect choice for international students. The Students' Union is the UK's largest, with over 300 student clubs and societies for you to try.

And the International Society provides a supportive, social environment for all international students studying in Manchester.
