At Manchester Metropolitan University we are committed to providing young people like you with the support and encouragement you need to succeed, and the First Generation scholarship scheme aims to do just that – and more.
Available to college students who study or live in the Greater Manchester area, the scheme provides a whole system of support for those who would like to go to University, but whose parents didn’t have the opportunity. This exciting programme offers a pre-entry phase which focuses on supporting participants to access and transition to University.
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. The focus of the scheme is employability and success, with alumni and successful business professionals supporting the scheme at every stage through networking sessions, mentoring, and employer visits.
Told by students who have participated in the programme, our video below explains how the First Generation scheme can help you.
