Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship

Here at Manchester Metropolitan University, we like to support our international students, and one way we do that is by allocating over £200,000 of Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships.

Each scholarship is of a different value, depending on the type of course the student is studying, for example, for an undergraduate degree, the scholarship is worth £2,500, while for a postgraduate degree it is £3,000.

Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarships are awarded on the basis of:

  • Academic merit;
  • What you hope to gain from the course you are taking; and
  • What you plan to do after completing your course.

We are very proud of our Vice-Chancellor’s Scholars, and we hold an award evening where the Scholar’s get to meet members of MMU International, and the Vice-Chancellor himself.

This year’s Scholar’s Evening was held on Monday 17th February, and was a great success. Scholars, members of MMU International and the Board of Governors mingled over Prosecco while being entertained by a string trio from the Northern College of Music, who played a mix of classical and contemporary music. They then sat down to a dinner in the impressive new home of the School of Art, the Benzie Building. Everyone looked very smart and were awarded their certificates by the Vice-Chancellor; John Brookes.

Here are some of the pictures from the evening:

Connect to MMU

Here at MMU International we understand that choosing to study in another country is a huge decision to make, especially if you haven’t had a chance to visit the institution of your choice.

So, we have launched a series of events which give you a taste of student life at Manchester Metropolitan University, without you having to leave your home town!

Here is the schedule of events over the coming months; keep checking back for a three day Connect to MMU extravaganza in November, where we will be hosting web chats with academics from all our faculties.
