Welcome to the Young Persons University of Manchester website!
This site has been set up to showcase some of the research currently being done at the University of Manchester, mainly by PhD students (graduate students who are studying for a further degree by research), and also by our academic staff. Some of the students have produced activities for you to have a go at in our ‘Challenges’ section.
These self-study activities relate to the main subject disciplines at the University: Engineering and Physical Sciences; Humanities; Life Sciences; Medical and Human Sciences. The ‘Challenges’ are designed to outline key concepts within a particular subject area, or to showcase current research being undertaken at the University.
Included within each Challenge is the option to discover more about studying related subjects at university and future career options. There are also links to additional resources related to that subject area.
The weekly blog section will be the place where more of our PhD students and other researchers from around the University will talk about their research, why it’s important (to them and others), and how you can find out more about studying at university. They will provide a taste of what it’s really like to be a researcher in the UK in the twenty-first century! Information about research developments and public engagement activities will also feature on this page.
Over the coming weeks, we will be showcasing research taking place in Archaeology, Materials Science, Medicine, and a range of other subjects. If there’s anything you’d particularly like to see on the blog, please do get in contact with us.
