The university traces its origins to the Manchester Mechanics Institute - later the Manchester College of Commerce - and the Manchester School of Design, which formed Manchester Polytechnic in 1970. Manchester Polytechnic then gained university status under the government's Further and Higher Education Act, becoming the Manchester Metropolitan University in 1992. Today, it is headquartered in the city of Manchester, with additional facilities in Cheshire. Manchester Metropolitan University is an accredited member of the Association of MBAs, and member of the University Alliance, the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the North West Universities Association, Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business and the European University Association. Today, it is also home to the Manchester School of Art, the Manchester School of Theatre, as well as the Manchester School of Architecture (MSA) administered in collaboration with the University of Manchester. The University's logo is derived from the upper part of the shield of the university crest, with six spade-irons positioned together, suggesting hard toil and entrenchment.
The entry requirements described in the prospectus (printed and on-line) are correct at the time of print/input and are intended to give an indication of the number of UCAS tariff points you are likely to be asked for on each course.
If you are not familiar with the UCAS tariff, you should go to the UCAS website where you will find the points associated with most of the qualifications you are likely to be taking. If you find that any of your qualifications do not appear on the tariff, please telephone our Course Enquiries staff on 0161 247 6969, and they will advise you on the suitability for entry to our courses.
Where the term ‘A2’ is used in the prospectus, this means that the points must come from A levels or equivalent (e.g. BTEC Extended Diploma) but not from AS levels. Many courses will also ask for specific subjects at GCSE and/or A level or equivalent. Where GCSE subjects are required you will always need at least a Grade C or Grade 4.
