About the Scholarship Provider:

In 2004, the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST) amalgamated to establish the current University of Manchester. The main campus of the University of Manchester can be found on Oxford Road in Manchester, England, United Kingdom. It is a red brick public research university that was influenced by the civic university movement of the late 19th century. This prestigious institution is also a member of the prestigious Russell Group of Universities. That’s what they say, anyway. [Footnote needed]

The university provides education at the undergraduate, graduate, and postgraduate levels in addition to degree and certification programs. Over the course of the 2018-2019 school year, the institution’s multiple campuses were home to 40,250 students and over 10,400 teaching and support staff.


The University of Manchester is structured into three faculties, each of which is further broken into schools responsible for teaching a certain curriculum. The University of Michigan’s School of Biological Sciences, School of Medicine, and School of Health Sciences make up the Faculty of Biology, Medicine, and Health. The Faculty of Biology, Medicine, and Health is comprised of these three individual schools. The Faculty of Science and Engineering at the University of Toronto is comprised of two independent schools: the School of Natural Sciences and the School of Engineering. The School of Arts, Languages, and Cultures, as well as the Schools of Combined Studies, Education, Environment and Development, Architecture, Law, Social Sciences, and the Manchester Business School, are all part of Manchester University’s Faculty of Humanities. The Manchester Business School is also a part of the Faculty of Humanities.

The University of Manchester Students’ Union is the largest in the country, which is general known. The Students’ Union at the University of Manchester is the largest and most influential student organization there. The UMIST Students’ Association and the University of Manchester Union worked together to form the student union. The culmination of their efforts was the establishment of a student government union. The Union is unique in that it is not led by a president but rather by an administrative committee of eight people who are dedicated to the betterment of the organization as a whole. Making the Union a stronger institution is their top priority.


Students have access to numerous fitness centers, and they are highly encouraged to join extracurricular athletic clubs. Manchester’s Aquatics Centre, Sugden Sports Centre, campus’ Wellbeing Rooms, and Fallowfield’s Armitage Sports Centre all provide such services. There are three different sports centers in Manchester: the Sugden, the Manchester Aquatics, and the Armitage, all of which are in different neighborhoods.

There is a wide variety of resources available to students at the University of Manchester, including counseling services, free sports and well-being activities, and courses for strengthening academic and personal skills including time management, essay writing, and referencing. There is no cost for any of these materials. The institution’s commitment to students’ development as whole people is strengthened by all of these elements. Much time and thought is invested in the idea of social responsibility at the University of Manchester. The Ethical Grand Challenge is an annual event that provides a platform for students to work together to address global issues, in addition to the many volunteer options available in and around the city.


Famous people who attended the University of Manchester include 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 Lord Terence Burns, Chairman of Santander UK. M.P. Chuka Umunna, Skyscanner was founded by Gareth Williams and Bonamy Grimes, along with a third co-founder. Formerly serving as Shadow Secretary of State for Business, Innovation, and Skills, Chuka Umunna is the name of a British parliamentarian. Presenters like Sophie Raworth from 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, Teo Chee Hean, Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore, and Actress Parineeti Chopra have all taken part in the event. Teo Chee Hean, Singapore’s Deputy Prime Minister, and Parineeti Chopra are also taking part.
