Our vision

Our vision is to be one of the world’s leading universities, and to be recognised for our global impact, our innovation and our role in one of the UK’s most progressive cities.

The University has three core goals: world-class research, an outstanding learning and student experience, and social responsibility. These goals drive us to make an impact globally, nationally and in the Greater Manchester region, through the provision of knowledge, enterprise, talented graduates, employment opportunities and cultural engagement.

Research strategy

Over and above the reputation of our institution and academics, we encourage research that benefits society as a whole. We have a bold research strategy outlining how we’ll continue to achieve it.
