THE UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER

Partner Information

The University of Manchester, in its present form, was created in 2004 by the amalgamation of the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). After 100 hundred years of working closely together, both institutions agreed to form a single university, and on 22 October 2004, they officially combined to form the largest single-site university in the UK. Today UNIMAN is one of the world’s top 30 universities. UNIMAN is a powerhouse of research and is ranked first in Europe and second in the world for social and environmental impact, the university works closely with government, business and not-for-profit organisations to deliver impact through innovation and commercialisation.
