Manchester Global Graduates 2024

Global Graduates is an exclusive programme for students at The University of Manchester giving you the opportunity to spend a fully-funded week in June in one of seven cities across the globe meeting with alumni from a range of business and industry sectors.

In small groups, you will have the opportunity to learn more about their businesses, roles, career journeys and what life is like living and working in the city.

Meetings with the alumni are arranged in advance by the Global Graduates team who will work with you closely before you travel to ensure you are fully prepared.

Thanks to the generous funding of alumni donors, in partnership with the University, travel and accommodation will be covered and spends will be provided for essentials such as food and drink.
