The School of Engineering at the University of Manchester is pleased to announce the availability of scholarship awards for academically outstanding students from other countries who will be beginning their postgraduate taught studies beginning in September 2023.
About the Scholarship Provider:
As it is now, the University of Manchester was formed in 2004 by the merger of Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). Manchester, England, United Kingdom is home to the University of Manchester, with its main campus located on Oxford Road. It was inspired by the late-19th-century civic university movement and built out of red brick as a public research university. This esteemed university is also included in the select Russell Group of Universities. That’s what I’ve heard. For further reading, see the accompanying footnote. The school offers courses leading to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees as well as professional certifications. There were 40,250 students and more than 10,400 faculty and staff at the institution across all campuses for the 2018-2019 academic year.
There are three main departments at the University of Manchester, each of which is further subdivided into schools that are responsible for teaching specific subject matter. The Faculty of Biology, Medicine, and Health at the University of Michigan consists of the School of Biological Sciences, the School of Medicine, and the School of Health Sciences. All three departments can be found under the umbrella of the Faculty of Biology, Medicine, and Health. The University of Toronto’s School of Natural Sciences and School of Engineering are two distinct divisions within the Faculty of Science and Engineering. In addition to the School of Arts, Languages, and Cultures, the Faculty of Humanities at Manchester University includes the Schools of Combined Studies, Education, Environment and Development, Architecture, Law, Social Sciences, and the Manchester Business School. Further to the Faculty of Humanities, Manchester is home to the Manchester Business School.
It’s common knowledge that the Students’ Union at the University of Manchester is the biggest in the UK. The University of Manchester Students’ Union is the largest and most prominent student group on campus. Students from both UMIST and the University of Manchester came together to create the union. The formation of a student government union was the end result of their efforts. Unlike most organisations, the Union is not headed by a single person but rather by a group of eight individuals who are all committed to the Union’s success. Their number one goal is to fortify the Union as an organisation.
Several student exercise centres are available, and students are strongly encouraged to participate in extracurricular sporting activities. There are a number of facilities in Manchester that offer this, including the Aquatics Centre, the Sugden Sports Centre, the campus’ Wellness Rooms, and the Armitage Sports Complex in Fallowfield. The Sugden, Manchester Aquatics, and Armitage are three of Manchester’s many sports centres, and they’re all located in different parts of the city.
Counseling services, free sports and well-being activities, and classes to improve academic and personal skills like time management, essay writing, and reference are just a few of the many opportunities offered to students at the University of Manchester. No money needs to be paid to obtain any of these resources. Together, these facets deepen the school’s dedication to the students’ personal growth as a whole. At the University of Manchester, the concept of social responsibility receives a lot of attention and study. In addition to the numerous opportunities for community service found around the city, the Ethical Grand Challenge offers students a forum in which to collaborate on solutions to pressing global problems.
The University of Manchester has produced many well-known alumni, such as Lord Terence Burns, Chairman of Santander UK; Professor Brian Cox OBE, Physicist and Science Communicator; Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of Oxfam International; Benedict Cumberbatch, CBE, Actor; and many more. Skyscanner was established by Gareth Williams, Bonamy Grimes, and a third co-founder, M.P. Chuka Umunna. Chuka Umunna is the name of a British lawmaker who once served as Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation, and Skills. Celebrities like Teo Chee Hean, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore, and Actress Parineeti Chopra have hosted the event. Other participants have included Sophie Raworth of BBC News, Sir Philip Craven MBE, President of the International Paralympic Committee, Professor, Dame Sally Davies, Chief Medical Officer for England for the government of the United Kingdom, and Parineeti Chopra. Aside from Parineeti Chopra and Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, there are a number of other notable people present.
