Manchester Global Graduates Programme

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

The week will be a mix of in-person meetings with alumni based in London and online meetings with alumni based in cities across the globe including Dubai, New York, San Francisco, Singapore and Zurich.

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 London as well as a range of major cities across the world.

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.

Dates of travel: Saturday 18 - Saturday 25 June, 2022.

Applications to Global Graduates 2022 have now closed.
