The Manchester College is a large college with campuses around Manchester. We offer courses for university level students as well as school leavers and adults. We welcome students from all over the UK and international students.

The Manchester College was formed in 2008 when City College Manchester merged with MANCAT (Manchester College of Arts and Technology).

We're based at a number of campuses around the city, with cutting-edge facilities and a friendly, supportive atmosphere at each. Our high standards have been recognised with a number of awards and accreditations.

Manchester is an exciting multicultural city with lots to offer students. It's also friendly and easy to get around. New arrivals tend to feel quickly at home and many students choose to stay in the city after graduation. The Manchester College has an Accommodation Officer and works with Manchester Student Homes (a student service run by the universities) to help you find a great place to live.

At a college this large and diverse there's always something happening! Visit our website for the latest news and events.
