Applying to the First Generation Scheme

Develop Your Confidence; Reach Your Potential

The First Generation scheme provides a whole system of support for young people from Greater Manchester who would like to go to University, but whose parents didn’t have the opportunity. 

Working with students in Year 12 and 13, the programme aims to help you access and transition to university by supporting you to make the right choices about your future, and providing practical support and guidance through the application process.

Those who choose to study at Manchester Metropolitan receive continued financial, personal and professional support to help you break down barriers and achieve your full potential.

Told by students who have participated in the programme, our video below explains how the First Generation scheme works.

Further information about what’s on offer can be found on our Programme Details page.
