Alumni Community

Manchester Metropolitan University is proud to have over 290,000 alumni worldwide.

A history of higher education in Manchester and Cheshire since 1824

Since 1824, when the Manchester Mechanics’ Institution was established as a centre of Technology, Art and Design, a number of institutions were born and later merged to form Manchester Polytechnic. After being awarded University Status in 1992, these predecessor institutions all form part of our rich history that, in turn, created the University as we see it today. We welcome to the alumni community all former students who have completed a course of study at our predecessor and partner institutions.

What is the alumni community?

Manchester Metropolitan University has over 290,000 alumni living across the world, with a further 10,000+ new graduates joining the community each year. Whether you completed your course of study this year or 50 years ago at one of our predecessor institutions, Manchester Met is proud to call you one of our alumni.
