A CITY MADE
                               FOR YOU
                               Manchester is one of Europe’s great
                               cities with a unique character.
                               As well as two of the world’s most successful
                               football clubs, you will also find a range of
                               sporting options including basketball, gymnastics,
                               swimming, taekwondo, cycling and squash.

                               The city has a famous history. For example, England’s
                               first free public library opened in Manchester in
                               1852, and the scientist John Dalton developed his
                               pioneering atomic theory in Manchester in 1803.

                               Manchester’s history can also be found in its many
                               museums as well as on its streets and buildings,
                               with architecture that ranges from medieval to
                               modern. It is a city with innovation and creativity,
                               across everything from science and industry to the
                               arts and media. That’s what makes it home to key
                               UK media organisations such as the BBC and many
                               art galleries, theatres, cinemas and music venues.

YOUR LEARNING
ENVIRONMENT
At Manchester Met, you will discover
impressive lecture theatres, seminar
rooms and study zones, as well as an
incredible 24-hour library stocked with
more than a million books, journals and
e-resources. We have over £400 million
planned to develop our facilities, and have
already invested in our Grosvenor building,
School of Digital Arts, Institute of Sport
and the Dalton building, a redevelopment
for the Faculty of Science and Engineering.
Learning with us involves a blend of different approaches
and different tools. Whether in lectures or tutorials,
participating in busy group sessions or focusing on
independent study, you will develop a valuable mix of
practical skills and academic understanding. And, when it’s
time to take a break from your studies, you can always find a
place to relax with friends.

Everything here is built around your studies, but it’s also
made to be sustainable. It’s why we’re top of the People
& Planet University League 2021/22 – a measure of our
environmental policy and more.

A university isn’t just a place. It is also a community. From
the teachers you will meet in the classroom and technicians
working behind the scenes, to the advisers at our Student
Hubs, there is a wide range of experts and specialists all
dedicated to helping you get the most from your time.           “The University contributes
