Foundation programmes

Law does not currently offer a foundation programme for international students.

However, we do validate the INTO Manchester International Foundation Programme and guarantee a conditional offer at the University to applicants who complete this programme.

We also accept qualifying students from some UK-based foundation programmes.

Generally, we require completion of 12 years of education to a minimum standard before the commencement of a foundation course.

Applicants should contact the School to check if their qualification is recognised for entry to this programme and for specific entry requirements.
