Manchester Metropolitan University, (MMU) came into being when Manchester Polytechnic was granted University status in 1992. It is a University with a rich heritage, and, like The University of Manchester, it can trace its roots back to the 19th Century. It has a proud tradition of excellence and a reputation for welcoming students from a diverse range of backgrounds, countries and cultures. It has over 37,000 students across a range of subjects including accounting and finance, business and management, science and engineering, healthcare and social work, clothing design and technology, art and design, humanities, law and teaching.
Its main All Saints Campus boasts a stunning new building housing the prestigious Business School. Manchester Metropolitan University is also home to the North West’s first public poetry library opened in 2021, with a mission to widen access to poetry and support the creation and performance of new writing at every level from primary school to professional publications. The Poetry Library is located in a new Arts and Humanities Building on the site of a former Singer Sewing machine factory, in the cultural quarter clustered around All Saints Park.
