Hello,

I am an international student and I would like to know more about the reputation of the university in England. I know very well that we are far from Oxbridge but what about overall ?

Thank you to you.

it's (relatively) new to the prestigious universities (that is, in the 2000s it joined the top of the league tables) but it is very well-regarded, often doing well on international leauge tables and appearing in the international reputation league table. I know they're not everything, but Manchester is about on the same level as Bristol, Sheffield, Liverpool and other red-brick universities. Hope this helps

Yes, it's considered prestigious. It's a research intensive university, and part of the Russell Group, which is often regarded as being the group of the most prestigious universities in the UK.

On the international rankings, Shanghai Jiao Tong rates it as 5th in the UK http://www.shanghairanking.com/ARWU2013.html and QS ranks it as 8th in the UK http://www.topuniversities.com/unive...=false+search=

As for being far from Oxbridge, then few would argue that Manchester is considered as prestigious as Oxbridge, but it should be noted that Manchester takes a lot of students who had the grades for Oxbridge but were rejected. Similarly, many Manchester graduates progress onto postgraduate degrees at Oxbridge.

Only part of it used to be UMIST, namely the Sackville Street campus. The rest was the Victoria University of Manchester.
