At the heart of the community

Manchester Met is proud to be developing Birley as a community campus and a blueprint for how a University and its local communities can benefit from being in such close proximity.

It will demonstrate:

  • How local residents can benefit from employment, study and training opportunities at the University 
  • How our students can boost their employability through rich work experience placements and volunteering opportunities
  • How university staff and students can tap into a rich knowledge base and resource to support real-life research
  • How local groups can access our expertise, facilities and resources
  • How we should work with local partners to ensure the University and local residents could benefit from being in such close proximity
