The University of Manchester

At The University of Manchester we have developed a comprehensive and exciting programme of activities for prospective students and their influencers.

This consists of work with primary, secondary and further education students as well as teachers, careers advisers and parents. Our work is informed by the following aims:

  • To promote opportunities for progression to higher education generally, wherever that might be.
  • To identify and attract talented students to Manchester from all educational backgrounds.

To achieve these aims we aim to provide a suite of professional, interactive and highly imaginative activities that can enthuse and inform learners about the range of opportunities and pathways open to them when considering higher education.

We are mindful of the need for learners to be able to access high-quality information, advice and guidance about higher education.

To this end we also work closely with teachers, careers advisers and parents on a range of activities.

One of the ways in which we are working with primary learners in the local area is in partnership the City in the Community Team and their Learning Through Football programme.

This is an educational project aimed at Year 5 & 6 pupils (age 10 & 11), the content of the project aims to use MCFC as a learning tool to engage young people in National Curriculum subjects – literacy, numeracy, geography, ICT, science, and modern foreign language.

This year student volunteers from The University of Manchester’s Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) will be joining the CITC staff to deliver these sessions in schools and talk about their experience of being a university student.

This additional input will encourage the pupils to think about their own aspirations for the future and encourage them to think about further and higher education.
