The generosity and warmth shown by past Manchester Met students is a testament to how graduates support the University.

There are many opportunities for alumni to help the University prepare our prospective and current students for their studies and future careers.

Fundraise for the University

Graduates, staff, students, and friends can fundraise on behalf of the University and for the First Generation campaign, at any time. Please visit our webpage for further information. If you would like to run, walk or bake in aid of a good cause but don’t have a charity in mind, why not raise money for the University’s campaign to support students, First Generation. Sign up to our JustGiving page here and get in touch so we can provide you with the materials you may need.

Over the last two years, over 1,050 alumni, staff, and students have taken part in the Great Manchester Run with Team Orange. Many ran in aid of their chosen charity, including First Generation and thanks to their efforts and the support of family and friends, over £2,200 has been donated to our campaign.

To register your interest to join Team Orange for the Great Manchester Run on Sunday, 19 May 2019, please email us. We want to see as many people as possible represent Manchester Metropolitan University - be #McrMetProud!

Volunteer your time

Alumni, staff, and friends of the University can offer their time and expertise through mentoring and paid placements that provide current students with the experience, knowledge, and expertise to get ahead and develop the skills they need for the workplace before they graduate.

Make a gift

The generosity and warmth shown by past Manchester Met students is a testament to how graduates support us in our aim to provide the next generation of deserving students with access to higher education, regardless of their financial background. 

Alumni can make a regular or single gift to the University at any time.

"When one of our alumni made a gift to the scheme, I was literally punching the air! What made me feel very happy was the fact that they contributed to help students that they have never even met."
