    University of Manchester offering qualifying law degrees recognised in England, Wales and Northern Ireland

    The University of Manchester is a "red brick" civic university located in Manchester, England. It is a member of the Russell Group of large research-intensive universities and the N8 Group for research collaboration. The present university was formed in 2004 by the dissolution of the Victoria University of Manchester (which was commonly known as the University of Manchester) and UMIST (University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology) and the immediate formation of a single institution inaugurated on 1 October. The University of Manchester and the constituent former institutions combined have 23 Nobel Laureates among their former students and staff, the third largest number of any single university in the United Kingdom behind Oxford and Cambridge.

    The university was named Sunday Times University of the Year in 2006 after winning the inaugural Times Higher Education Supplement University of the Year prize in 2005. According to The Sunday Times, "Manchester has a formidable reputation spanning most disciplines, but most notably in the life sciences, engineering, humanities, economics, sociology and the social sciences".

    In 2007/08 it had over 40,000 students studying 500 academic programmes and more than 10,000 staff, making it the largest single-site university in the United Kingdom. More students try to gain entry to the University of Manchester than any other university in the country, with more than 60,000 applications for undergraduate courses alone. In 2007 the University had an annual income of ?£637 million.

    In the first national assessment of higher education research since the university’s founding, the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, the University of Manchester came 3rd in terms of research power after Cambridge and Oxford and 8th for grade point average quality when including specialist institutions.

    About the School of Law

    Legal education has been provided at Manchester since 1872 and the highest standards of legal studies have been maintained over the years. In 2004, with the birth of the new University of Manchester, the Law School's range of specialisms broadened to include criminology. We will ensure you graduate with a rigorous grounding in the law or criminology and associated techniques, together with a sound appreciation of its theoretical and policy implications.

    Manchester has produced many celebrated law graduates and our staff have always been at the leading edge of legal scholarship. No fewer than 11 serving judges are former Manchester graduates or academics.

    We are held in high esteem by the legal profession and many leading solicitors provide us with sponsorship. This includes the funding of our Legal Advice Centre, which was opened in 2000 to provide students with experience in doing pro bono legal work.

    The School fosters links with overseas institutions and we have student exchange programmes with universities in Europe, USA, Australia and Singapore.

    Every Manchester Law graduate with a Qualifying Law Degree at a Class 2:2 degree or better is guaranteed a place at one of the branches of the College of Law, to study on the Legal Practice Course.
