A truly international city
Manchester is home to more international students than any other region outside of London. We welcome over 3,000 students from 120 countries to the University every year. We are also a major international educational and research hub, with strong links to businesses and universities all over the world.
Manchester’s cosmopolitan character creates a truly dynamic atmosphere that has earned it the unofficial title of the UK’s most popular student city. The University also has fantastic facilities to help make international students feel at home.
We are internationally connected having built a number of collaborative and strategic partnerships with institutes and organisations across the globe. These partnerships ensure that our staff are aware of the latest developments in fashion education and the apparel industry worldwide and our students are given the best opportunities for real world experiences.
Working in partnership with universities and colleges around the world, we are able to offer a number of exciting overseas work placements, exchange programmes, study trips and opportunities for our students to both study and work abroad.
