About The University Of Manchester

Great thinking got us where we are today. We have no fewer than 25 Nobel Prize winners among our current and former staff, students and alumni. We are on track to enter the top 25 universities in the world by 2020. Yet, we’re still searching for answers to some of the greatest questions facing the human race. That’s why we recruit the best people in science, humanities, engineering, life sciences and medicine. With a £1 billion investment in people and facilities – you’ll have everything you need to make your biggest breakthrough yet.

We’re exploring this unique opportunity through the development of our bold and exciting plan – the Manchester 2020 Agenda. Our highly ambitious yet fully achievable aim is to establish and consolidate The University of Manchester as one of the world’s top 25 universities.

The President and Vice-Chancellor of The University of Manchester, Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell, is leading the plan, which is designed to identify and achieve some significant goals for activities that touch every aspect of University life:

  • World-class research
  • Outstanding learning and student experience
  • Social responsibility
