Today (15 June) marks 200 days until the University’s 200th anniversary – and the launch of our exciting bicentenary countdown.
From January 2024 we’ll be celebrating our people – historical icons such as Alan Turing and Christabel Pankhurst, to the trailblazers driving change today – recognising their incredible achievements and the impact they have made, in Manchester and around the world, in a year-long programme of events.
You can now opt in to hear more as our plans develop, and to help us ‘Co-create 200’ – curating, together, a programme of events befitting such a landmark anniversary. From sharing your ideas to volunteering your time, we’d love for you to get involved.
You’ll be among the first to know as our plans progress – including details of any potential volunteering opportunities.
The bicentenary represents a significant milestone for the University, and the chance to both reflect and look ahead. With collaboration at the heart of our community, we want to mark 200 years of education and innovation by engaging with staff, students, alumni, our partners and the public to shape the celebrations to come.
Among them will be a flagship Bicentenary Festival (6-9 June 2024), plus a great range of events and activities. Perhaps, even, a few surprises.
Help us celebrate what makes us proud to belong at Manchester by signing up today.
