Following UK government guidance, there has been a temporary closure of non-essential campus facilities. If you need to get in touch with a member of staff, please visit the Contact us section of this website. Staff are working from home and responding to emails. We are still accepting applications from those wishing to study with us, though we ask you to please be patient through this challenging time.
Further information about the current status of the campus can be found on The University of Manchester's Coronavirus information page.
