Teaching and learning
We're committed to ensuring your journey with us is personal and supported.
By choosing to study at the School of Law, you'll be able to most of our modern teaching methods, world-relevant expertise and the support we offer at every level of your studies.
Our teaching was rated as 'excellent' by HEFCE, and our research-led approach to education means your lecturers will have real-world experience and knowledge which is sought by international organisations. Your time with us will encourage you to consider new perspectives which will be highly relevant once you graduate.
Pastoral care and support
Throughout your time with us you will have a dedicated Academic Adviser who will be available to provide help and advice on any aspect of student life. We also have degree and course unit leads available to offer you both academic and professional expertise.
The School of Law Mentor Scheme is run by second and third year undergraduate students to support incoming first years. As a new undergraduate, your mentor will help you to settle in to your new life in Manchester and make the most of your time at Manchester. Mentors are available to:
- Help you adapt to university life and get involved in the School of Law and all its activities
- Offer support, help and direction in any aspect of university life
- Provide you with a supportive environment to work through issues relating to your studies
- Organise informal social activities to help you make new connections in the School and beyond
When you move into your second year you can then become a peer mentor to the next cohort of first years. This offers new opportunities to develop yourself and add skills to your CV, while also ensuring that the new students settle in and enjoy their time with us.
