For those who do things a little differently, like us.

January starts are now open for applications. Explore our one-year degree level courses (HNC's) that you can complete in as little as eight months to get you qualified or ready to progress to the next level by September, as well as our Foundation and BA (Hons) Top-up degrees, and Access to Higher Education Diplomas.

If you've started your qualification elsewhere you may also be able to switch to study with us using a record of prior learning. Find out more and enquire on our Switching Uni webpage.

Rest assured whatever your personal circumstances, at UCEN Manchester, we're here to support you. We offer dedicated support and many opportunities to work 1 to 1 with tutors so you really understand what you're studying and don't get lost in the crowd.
