The UMIST campus is situated right at the heart of one of Britain's most vibrant and cosmopolitan cities.  Those of you who only know of Manchester from the city's sporting and music success will have a chance to see one of the most remarkable achievements in urban transformation in Britain.  Building on a proud history and fascinating architectural heritage, in recent years Manchester has recreated itself as a vibrant, stylish hi-tech city which has somehow still kept its friendly heart of traditional street markets and local pubs.

Higher and further education have played a vital role in this transformation.  Its four city-centre universities give Manchester one of the highest concentrations of students anywhere in Europe, greatly adding to the city's energy and spirit.  All four universities are also truly international in character, attracting students from all over the world, contributing to the city's already-rich cultural mix.  They reflect Manchester's unique blend of vision and technology-inspired innovation in their approaches to teaching and learning.
