Behind Manchester's Doors: First Years

The Careers Service is offering a limited number of places on its Behind Manchester's Doors programme for 2024, exclusively for first year undergraduates at The University of Manchester.

A small group of students will have the opportunity to visit organisations in Manchester allowing them to gain a 'behind the front door' view of a variety of businesses and recruiters in Manchester.

As part of the visits, students will have the chance to find out more about the organisation, meet some of its employees and partake in a mini-project or case study where they will work in groups on a live issue that is important to the organisation.

Sectors for 2024 are:

Arts & Creative

Business & Finance


Communications & Marketing
