University of Manchester

The Fulbright University of ManchesterAward covers the first year of any master's degree offered by the university, except their MBA programme.

Manchester was the world’s first modern industrial city. The history of the university is entwined with the history of our city and region.

The University of Manchester, in its present form, was created in 2004 by the amalgamation of the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST).

After 100 hundred years of working closely together, both institutions agreed to form a single university, and on 22 October 2004 they officially combined to form the largest single-site university in the UK.

According to the 2016 Academic Ranking of World Universities, Manchester is the 35th best university in the world.
