The University of Manchester was created in 2004 by the amalgamation of the Victoria University of Manchester and the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology (UMIST). After 100 hundred years of working closely together both institutions agreed to form a single university, and on 22 October 2004 they officially combined to form the largest single-site university in the UK. More students try to gain entry to the University of Manchester than to any other university in the country, with more than 55,000 applications for undergraduate courses in 2014 resulting in 6.5 applicants for every place available. According to the 2012 Highfliers Report, Manchester is the most targeted university by the Top 100 Graduate Employers.
The University is the largest single-site university in the UK, with the biggest student community. In total, 25 Nobel Prize winners have worked or studied here. They have a history of world firsts and brilliant discoveries, from splitting the atom to giving the world graphene. 83% of their research was ranked as ‘world-leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ by the Research Excellence Framework in 2014. They are ranked 41st in the world, eighth in Europe and fifth in the UK in the 2014 Shanghai Jiao Tong World Ranking.
