University Profile

The University of Manchester is the largest single-site university in the United Kingdom. The academic structure of the University of Manchester is made up of Faculties and Schools. It has four faculties, divided into schools covering major groupings of subjects. The faculties include Engineering and Physical Sciences, Humanities, Life Sciences, and Medical and Human Sciences.

The University of Manchester has also established a number of prestigious interdisciplinary research institutes in addition to existing specialist research centres and groups. Some of its research institutes include Dalton Nuclear Institute, Institute of Health Sciences, Neuroscience Research Institute, Photon Science Institute, Manchester Interdisciplinary Biocentre, Manchester Cancer Research Centre, and Paterson Institute for Cancer Research.

The University of Manchester has 20 Nobel Prize winners amongst its former staff and students. For example, the nuclear age was born in Manchester with Ernest Rutherford's pioneering research that led to the splitting of the atom.

UMIST can trace its roots back to 1824 and the formation of the Manchester Mechanics' Institute, whilst The Victoria University of Manchester was founded as Owens College in 1851. After 100 years of working together, these two institutions were formally combined to form a single university, the University of Manchester, coming into being on 22 October 2004.
