Manchester Metropolitan University
We know that Year 13 students will be well into the process of researching their Higher Education options and we are here to support them in their decision making. Our resources webpage is there to help you if you would like any talks/workshops for your students.
Similarly, if you are planning your own HE activity and would like our support, then please do get in touch I’d be more than happy to support.
Manchester Metropolitan University will be hosting a variety of events throughout November as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science. To coincide with COP26, events will focus on sustainability and climate change as well as the societal impact of Covid19.

For those working with young people, you will have the opportunity to build your knowledge and skills to empower young people respond to climate change through our award winning ‘Climate Sense’ training. You can pose your questions to a real Guardian of the Galaxy, experience the rain forest without having to leave your sofa and hear from Steve Kenzie- Chief Executive of the United Nations Global Compact Network, UK.
All events are free to attend. Find out more and register here.
Our open days are back on campus, and we’d love to see you there!

Northumbria University is committed to supporting students aspirations, regardless of background and we would like to bring your attention to a fantastic opportunity for some of your year 12 students to receive additional support on their journey to university. Given the additional challenges of the last few years, we hope this year more than ever, students will benefit from the fantastic range of free support provided by NU Entry.
NU Entry is an established two-year scheme designed to support students in Year 12 in England on their journey to university. The first year of the programme focusses on supporting students’ exploration of university choices, development of key skills for undergraduate study and application preparation. The second year of the programme continues the application support and is designed to support the transition to university. Students who complete the first year of NU Entry, will earn 16 NU Entry points, which are equivalent to UCAS tariff points when applying to Northumbria University.
What does NU Entry involve?
In their first year of sixth form/college, students will complete any combination of two online webinars/activities or faculty events from our programme, attend our NU Entry conference on campus in July and complete a research essay on their chosen subject area of interest, to earn NU Entry points, which is fantastic experience to support personal statement writing. In the second year of sixth form/college, students are then able to benefit from an optional programme of support throughout the year.
For more information and to apply
Please find a flyer (click here), summarising NU Entry and the support provided through the programme. Interested students should head to our website to check they are eligible and complete our short online application form to apply: northumbria.ac.uk/nuentry.
Applications close on the 21st January 2022 @ 17:00.
If you require any further information, have any questions, or would like to discuss a short virtual introduction to the scheme, please do get in touch on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to help. We look forward to hopefully working with you this year as part of NU Entry.
