Manchester is a fascinating, dynamic and vibrant city which caters for everybody. Whether you are interested in sport or architecture, history or business, nightlife or art, we are sure that you will find our city a great place to live and study.

The Manchester College is based at many sites across the city: from Moston and Harpurhey in the North to Wythenshawe and West Didsbury in the South, as well as several locations in the city centre. Each site has its own specialist, cutting edge facilities and resources within a friendly and supportive atmosphere. The college is ideally placed to offer a huge range of opportunities for students and learners of all ages.

At The Manchester College, we never forget that education is about serving the community. The College is not just an effective institution – the College is a unique and special one. They strongly believe that their success is based on the culture of the college. There is a real buy-in to their vision and all our staff do their utmost for the communities they serve.

In education, the interface between the teacher and the learner is a very creative process. That interaction is at the heart of the college’s work.

The Manchester College has invested greatly in their vocational facilities, bringing them up to and beyond the standards of those in industries such as catering and IT. They believe that the quality of the equipment, the quality of their staff, the demands of the curriculum and the support mechanisms they provide for their learners are second to none in any college in the UK.

The Manchester College is one of the best providers of education in the country, according to the results of a confidential student survey benchmarked against 140 colleges nationally. Nearly 11,500 students completed The Learner Induction/ On-Programme Survey, provided by QDP – the largest supplier of questionnaire and data processing services to the UK education and skills sector. The students were asked to rate the college’s teaching and learning, assessment methods, enrichment programmes, course organisation, quality of support, accommodation, services and general facilities. In every category, responses from The Manchester College were significantly higher than the national standard.
