University of Manchester

The University of Manchester is a world leading research institution with 25 Nobel Prize winners from within its staff and students. Its campus blends into the surrounding city, a favorite destination of UK students due to its urban pulse and low cost of living compared to London. Students can choose from a wide range of subjects while studying abroad, with particularly strong offerings in engineering, computer sciences, and neuroscience.

The Setting

Study Abroad students find that spending a period of study at one of the world's best universities is not only a great experience in itself, but also enhances their academic insights, employability and life skills. If you go to study in Manchester, you’ll be able to take advantage of a number of initiatives during your time there. You can choose from a wide range of subjects for your period of studying abroad, as well as focus on particular skill pathways, including Leadership and Service, English Language, and Pre-Law. Students interested in sustainability issues might also wish to look at the sustainability programmes.

Check out the blog written by inbound Study Abroad/Exchange students for an insight into life as a Study Abroad student in Manchester.


Courses are offered in a variety of subjects. All students need to maintain a full credit load of 60 credits in the Manchester system.

A number of disciplines are very popular both with incoming Study Abroad students and full-degree students, and fill up quickly. If you are interested in applying for course units in any of the following disciplines, we recommend you apply as early as possible:

  • Economics
  • English Literature
  • English Language
  • Politics
  • History

There is a better chance of places being available if you apply early.

Academic Calendar

  • Fall semester typically runs from September to January
  • Spring semester typically runs from January to June

You can view exact program dates on the university’s academic calendar


Students studying abroad at The University of Manchester for a year are guaranteed a room in Manchester accommodation. Students coming for one semester only are not guaranteed a room, but under normal circumstances are usually allocated one. There is a wide range of residential accommodation, ranging from modern self-catering apartments through to traditional collegiate-style halls of residence with meal plans. All students are given their own room with many facilities available including en-suite bathrooms. Many rooms also have Ethernet connections.

Additionally, halls of residence have their own sports teams – rugby, hockey, cricket, netball and squash are just some of the sports available – and some have other social groups in-house - orchestras, choirs, drama and other societies. More information about housing can be found on the Accommodation Office website.

Some halls have specially adapted flats or rooms for students with a disability and some catered halls are able to assist if you have special dietary requirements.

Student Life

The University of Manchester Students’ Union is an organisation run by and for all students at The University of Manchester – it is autonomous from the University and is democratically controlled at all levels by students. It exists to provide cultural, recreational, educational support and representation for all its members. A myriad of societies, run by and for students, are organised within the Students’ Union. Whether you’re into Hiking or Hung Kuen Kung Fu, you’re sure to find at least one that appeals to you. 

Money Matters

Students who receive financial aid at Princeton continue to receive Princeton financial aid for the approved costs of study abroad programs during the academic year. For detailed information about financial aid, program fees, and billing for study abroad, please visit the Money Matters section of the Study Abroad website.
