Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne has officially opened the £61m National Graphene Institute (NGI) at The University of Manchester.
The University of Manchester is proud to be supporting British Science Week (13 to 22 March), a ten-day programme of science, technology, engineering and maths events and activities across the UK for people of all ages.
The University of Manchester’s place as one of the UK’s top research universities is confirmed in the results of the independent Research Excellence Framework (REF) published today (Thursday, 18 December 2014).
During the most recent REF period the School of Chemistry was cited 19,170 times. This makes us the third most cited school in the UK, with an average of 8.62 cites per document.
With £43 million received in grants, we have the fourth largest university research income in the UK.
We received a score of 92% in the 2013 National Student Satisfaction Survey.
Since opening in 1824 our School has been home to atomic theory pioneer John Dalton and seven Nobel Prize winners.
Our student body is made up of 703 undergraduates and 303 postgraduate students.
There are 65 academic staff and 59 support staff currently working within the School.
We work with 144 Postdoctoral Research Assistants.
