Dean’s Welcome Statement

As Dean of the Faculty of Humanities, I would like to extend a warm welcome to all students joining The University of Manchester.

Our Faculty is the largest of three in the University and consists of five Schools, embracing disciplines as diverse as business and management, social sciences, law, education, languages, arts and environment and development. 

As a postgraduate researcher in Humanities, you will join a strong academic community that boasts a range of thriving interdisciplinary groups, institutes and partnerships.

The relationships we’ve developed cross borders – engaging with and learning from colleagues across our campus as well as overseas – and united, we’re tackling global challenges such as environmental sustainability, climate change, business innovation, social justice, poverty and conflict response.

Studying within our Faculty gives you direct access to leading scholars and a diverse group of doctoral students from across the globe, from which you can learn from and share ideas. We hope you’ll take every opportunity to build friendships and alliances that may well last a lifetime.

In this online Handbook you’ll find material specific to the programme of study or the discipline area in which your research will be based. Your School postgraduate research support team will be able to help if you have further queries and guide you throughout your time with us. 

I wish you well in your research studies.
