The Manchester Network

The Manchester Network is The University of Manchester’s online professional networking service. It lets students connect with alumni professionals and alumni connect with fellow alumni and develop mentoring relationships. Unlike other networking sites, the Manchester Network is purely for students and alumni of the University. This platform is currently under development and not available for semester 1 2020/1. We look forward to sharing with students when this resource is available for access.
