Manchester University Home

Over and over again, the people who pass through this institution attribute who they are, how far they have come and what they have achieved to one of us. They say it's "because you put me first." Maybe it was a small act of kindness delivered at a time of true need. Or the passion for a subject that caught the student's imagination and kindled the desire to pursue it. It might simply have been words of encouragement that gave the student confidence to succeed.

The Students First! campaign secures our college and our jobs, and most importantly, it gives each of us more ability to put our students first. Through it, we will fulfill our mission to an even greater degree. As the staff of Manchester University, we can be proud of what we are achieving together. Thank you for your support of this campaign and for all you do to put our students first.
