✨ The University of Manchester ✨
The University of Manchester is a city university in the UK's 2nd largest metropolitan area, and a Russell Group member.
Manchester provides funding for a large number of postgraduate students each year, with awards through the UK's seven research councils, as well as by the university.
All international students are guaranteed a place in university-owned accommodation for the duration of their studies, providing they are coming to university alone, and have submitted an application for accommodation by the deadline in the autumn they intend to start their course.
Accommodation is at three locations: City, with facilities such as the libraries and Students' Union on the doorstep; Victoria Park, between City and Fallowfield and ideally placed for both academic and social activities; and Fallowfield, two miles south of the city centre – a popular suburb with a vibrant and diverse local community.
The University of Manchester library is one of only five National Research Libraries. Eleven site libraries house over 4.2 million printed books and manuscripts; and the Alan Gilbert Learning Common is open 24/7.

The University of Manchester is home to the UK’s biggest Students' Union, offering an independent advice service, shops, a café and a bar offering student-friendly prices.
There are more than 450 clubs and societies run for students by students, ranging from subject related societies, sporting and those that are just for fun. The Students' Union also has some of the UK's best student media, including an award-winning newspaper (The Mancunion), a radio station (Fuse FM) and a TV channel.
Alumni include 25 Nobel Prize Winners, the co-founders of Skyscanner, and Sherlock and Dr Strange actor Benedict Cumberbatch.
