Goal 1: Operations

The University’s operational activities play a key role in our approach to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Here’s a wider showcase of our work addressing Goal 1.

Female sanitation

We’ve worked with our Students’ Union and current Women’s Officer to initiate and fund a new scheme providing free period products for our students, helping to combat period poverty and ensure sanitation for all.

Student financial support

A significant proportion of our students are from families that fall below the national poverty line.

We offer a range of support to ensure that financial issues don’t present an obstacle for learners, including:

  • The Manchester Bursary
  • The Manchester Master’s Bursary
  • The Undergraduate Access Scholarship
  • The Living Cost Support Fund
  • The ‘Helpmegetonline’ scheme
Student Financial Support

Many students from disadvantaged backgrounds face financial pressures during undergraduate study. We’re committed to ensuring that financial issues do not present an obstacle for learners. We have one of largest cohorts of students from low-income households and one of the most generous financial support packages in the UK.
