Read about some of our students' personal journeys to higher education
Our diverse University community is made up of many staff, students and graduates whose parents or guardians didn't attend university - many of our students are from families with no experience of higher education.
To help others who aspire to come to Manchester Metropolitan University, some of our First Generation Student Ambassadors shared their personal journeys to higher education.
"I heard about First Generation through my college and I thought it was a great programme; the scheme has given me the opportunity to follow in my brother's footsteps. I know that studying at Manchester Metropolitan will give me more independence and create more opportunities to succeed. I had always hoped to go to university and First Generation is now helping me realise this dream."
