Global in our outlook, we are well connected through partnerships with UK and international organisations.
Our staff are developing deeper and more productive partnerships in many key markets around the world to broaden our reach and influence in learning, teaching and knowledge exchange.
Our research is rated as internationally excellent with proven impact on the economy, society, culture, public policy and quality of life. Our expertise in a wide range of research areas enables us to develop valuable knowledge exchange partnerships and research partnerships with many other universities worldwide.
Each year, we invite distinguished academics to come to Manchester as visiting professors to conduct lectures and seminars for our staff and students. We host a number of international conferences and have joint research and consultancy projects with networks of universities across Europe, the Commonwealth of Independent States and Asia.
These global connections allow us to build a diverse higher education network in order to reach new students and provide invaluable opportunities to our UK students.
