About Manchester Metropolitan University

With around 40,000 students [1]  and 330,000 alumni from 170 countries, Manchester Metropolitan University is the ninth most popular by applications [2]  and among the biggest universities in the UK [3] .

Balancing a proud heritage with a modern and ambitious approach, we work to deliver the highest standards of accessible higher education and research.

With investment of £400 million, our environmentally friendly city centre campus [4]  is purpose built for the best possible learning experience. It’s home to a triple accredited Business School as well as state-of-the-art centres like our new Institute of Sport, School of Digital Arts (SODA) and more.

This university is a hub of groundbreaking creativity, advances in sport, and pioneering works in science, engineering, health, education, business and law. Whether it’s undergraduates, postgraduates or degree apprenticeships, our diverse network of students, staff, communities and businesses come together to teach, learn and innovate to help make life better for all.

And the results are clear: fifteen months after graduating, 91% of our former students are either in employment or in further education [5]  and 90% of our research impact is world-leading or internationally excellent [6].
