Get ready for Manchester

All your hard work has paid off, and now it's time to start planning and preparing for your new life as a Manchester student.

There are three main steps you must complete in order to officially register at The University of Manchester:

  • activate your IT account
  • confirm your attendance
  • register online

We'll send you an email about how to do these things after you've met the conditions of your offer. It's important that you wait for your email.

You'll also need to check you've sorted out accommodation for when you're here—you must apply for University accommodation before 31 August to be guaranteed a place.

Once you've celebrated enough, the summer's a good time to start preparing yourself for what it will be like to study at university—it will be very different from what you're used to at college. Likewise, if you're making the step up from undergraduate to postgraduate study, you can get a head start now that will make September a little smoother.

If you're coming from far away, you'll also need to start planning your travel and documentation, as well as start making lists of what to bring!

While you're packing, tweet us @AdmissionsUoM to tell us the one thing you'll be bringing that you couldn't live without, and don't forget to post pictures of your journey to Manchester!

Once you've done all that, sit back, relax and start planning all the fun things you're going to do in Welcome Week!
