Goal 16: Learning and students

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

Here’s a wider showcase of our work addressing Goal 16.

Workshops about sexual assault

We’ve teamed up with Greater Manchester Police to fund a series of thought-provoking interactive theatre performances and workshops led by Manchester-based charity, Odd Arts.

This engages with students to challenge and explore issues of consent and sexual assault and increases confidence in reporting and victims support.

Manchester Innocence Project

The Manchester Innocence Project (MIP) is one of only 13 organisations outside of the US to join the Innocence Network.

Law students volunteering with MIP have the opportunity to take on live criminal appeals for those who maintain their innocence.

Study programmes

We’re committed to promoting peaceful and just societies through a wide range of study programmes.

For example, undergraduate Law students take units in human rights and counter-terrorism legislation, while master’s students can go on to become international lawyers through our advanced course in Public International Law.
