Manchester Urban Institute

Students walking along Oxford Road


The MUI brings together graduate students to study a variety of issues.

Across three Faculties - Biology, Medicine and Health, Humanities, and Science and Engineering - The University of Manchester offers graduate students a challenging and supportive intellectual environment in which to conduct their research.

Graduate students can study issues such as climate change, cosmopolitanism, design, encounters, finance, governance, housing, informality, migration, planning, politics, resilience, and transport.

Why study with us?

By bringing together anthropologists, architects, economists, educationalists, engineers, geographers, historians, linguists, medics, sociologists and many more disciplines, we offer graduate students the opportunity to work with people they might not otherwise meet.
