All physical face-to-face teaching has been suspended and non-essential facilities have been closed. Admissions events and open days have been cancelled but admissions staff are continuing to process applications as quickly as possible.
Given the cancellation of UK exams for A-Level students, the university is urgently seeking further information from the government about how grades will now be awarded. The university is keen to ensure that no student’s opportunity to attend the University of Manchester in the coming year is affected.
For international students, deadlines will be extended to receive transcripts and other documentation. If you’re from the European Union and need to take an English-language test, there may be an alternative available to you if your IELTS/TOEFL test center is closed. Contact your faculty or department at the university for further advice.
New applications for 2020 are still being considered, dependent on availability. Check with UCAS or directly on the university website for more information.
