    UG COURSES - 2 YEARS DURATION

    Unlike other UK universities the UG courses take only 2 years to complete.  Students to NOT have a long summer holiday, instead they have 4 semesters during the year with short 2 - 3 week breaks in between.  This does reduce the living costs and the tuition fees for the students and importantly allows them to start their "earning years" earlier.

    UG MEDICINE

    Currently this course only starts in January.  The January 23 intake is full.  The deadline for January 24 intake will be around December 22 or January 23 i.e. one year before the course starts because they receive so many applications.  The course is taught in Crewe which is close to Manchester.

    PG COURSES

    A range of PG courses are available particularly in Business, Computing, Money, Finance, MBA.  There is no engineering.  

    The MBA does not require any work experience.
