Universities & Business Schools
The University of Manchester is the UK's largest university and has a rich and proud heritage dating back to 1824. It is the birthplace of many discoveries which have had a major impact on society, including the development of the first modern computer, the splitting of the atom by Rutherford, the first degree in nursing, the birth of modern economics and medical ethics and the discovery of graphene. The University’s strategic plan is based around three core goals: world-class research; outstanding learning and student experience; and social responsibility. Social responsibility describes the way we are making a difference to the social and economic well-being of our communities through our teaching, research and public events and activities.
