General Enquiries – 0161 306 6000

Call the University of Manchester on their general enquiries telephone number 0161 306 6000 to contact a representative with any questions about their admissions process at both undergraduate and postgraduate level. For instance, prospective students should ask about the entrance requirements for their preferred STEM course but certain sciences, such as medicine will have much stricter criteria. You may wish to use this number to ask about the course fees for your intended degree before requesting a prospectus for any additional information. Moreover, it is useful to ask about the university’s accommodation facilities prior to enrollment as there are several halls of residence and offer-holders will not automatically be given a place.

Alternatively, you may wish to register your attendance at an upcoming open day to speak to a member of faculty staff and to check out the campus in person. Therefore, you may wish to ask a university representative where to find a map of the campus upon your arrival as the University of Manchester has departments throughout the city, which may be difficult to navigate. Both alumni and members of the public are eligible to study in one of University of Manchester’s libraries once they have registered for a day-visitors pass but only students are able to borrow a book to take home. Therefore, it is recommended that callers use this number to ask about the opening times of their main library or whether they are able to use the 24-hour Alan Gilbert learning commons.

Existing students can use this number to ask about the University of Manchester term dates if they are unable to find the relevant information online or from their course representative. Finally, you may wish to use this number to check the status of a job application made to the university if you are unable to find the specific department’s contact details online.
