Check out our blog page about Materials at Manchester: a unique combination of fashion business and technology, and materials science and engineering.
During Welcome 2020 there will be a range of online sessions for you to book that will help you take the next steps in your academic career. All of these events can be found by navigating to the page relevant to your level of study via the links below. We know this year's Welcome events are a little different from usual, but we have done everything we can to ensure you still get the information you need, while giving you the chance to interact with your course leaders and socialise with your coursemates. Don't forget that there are also a range of excellent societies you can join - they are a great way to boost your CV and make new friends!
Over the course of Welcome, you can expect to find sessions covering how you will be taught this year, what it means to be back at university in such unusual circumstances, and the new measures put in place for if you do have any on-campus elements of teaching. Throughout all of this, we want to reassure you that we will deliver a great blended learning experience so that we can welcome you safely back onto campus. We are here to help and support you every step of the way, so if you have any questions, please do get in touch with us.
We look forward to seeing you very soon!
