University events

The University of Manchester is also hosting general events about postgraduate taught study on the same day. If you are interested in a taught Master’s, you can attend general talks and campus tours between 12 and 2pm, before visiting CHSTM. You will need to register separately for these events. A programme of events, and registration details, are on the University website at

The University events on 25 November do not cover postgraduate research, but potential supervisors at CHSTM will be happy to answer any questions.

The session will run from 2 till 4pm in Room 2.57 Simon Building, Brunswick Street, Manchester (see Maps and travel).

Talks will cover course structures and content, the application process, and career opportunities, including progression from taught Master’s study to PhD. Current and former graduate students will also be available to answer your questions and chat informally about their experience.
