Breaking down barriers before, during and after university.
Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to supporting bright local students into and through university, providing the support and encouragement to help young people succeed.
We are inviting Year 12 students to be a part of the first cohort of our First Generation programme. This is a new scheme to help bright, young people like you, from backgrounds that do not usually enter higher education, to secure an undergraduate place at Manchester Metropolitan and then provide continued financial, professional and personal support throughout your studies and into employment.
The result for you is a scheme that breaks down barriers before, during and after university. The result for Manchester and the UK is talent unlocked, potential achieved, and lives changed.
The following subject areas will be available for the first year of the programme:
Applicants should select your preferred subject area on your application form - please complete and submit your application via the online format the bottom of this page. A form is also available to download, complete and return by post.
