About The University of Manchester

The University of Manchester is one of Britain's most prestigious and forward-thinking universities, with a rich heritage stretching back 180 years and an exciting agenda for the future.

Our story is one of world firsts and brilliant discoveries. Manchester is the birthplace of nuclear physics, where Ernest Rutherford first split the atom. The world’s first stored-programme computer was developed here, and Alan Turing pioneered artificial intelligence during his time at the University. Our observatory at Jodrell Bank is home to the iconic Lovell Telescope – the biggest telescope of its type in the world when it was built.

The economist Arthur Lewis became the first black professor at a British University when he joined us, and published his most influential works while at Manchester. And Christabel Pankhurst, a Manchester law graduate unable to enter the profession on account of her gender, became one of the suffragette movement’s most committed campaigners.

More recently, Manchester researchers and Nobel Laureates Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov have given the world graphene – the two-dimensional ‘wonder material’ that is one atom thick, but 200 times stronger than steel.
