Teachers at INTO Manchester in partnership with The University of Manchester

Here to help you

Your INTO teachers are here to help you every step of the way. They all have extensive experience supporting international students in their preparation for university success.

Small class sizes - with an average 1:9 student to teacher ratio - mean you'll always receive high levels of one-to-one contact.

Classes mirror university-style teaching with lectures, practical sessions, seminars, tutorials, supported private study and e-learning so you experience university study from the start.

Progress reports will ensure you remain on track to achieve your academic ambitions. And university-style teaching will give you the best possible start to securing a successful UK university education.

All of our English language courses are accredited by the British Council, and all of our academic programmes are accredited by NCUK. This means you'll receive the highest quality of teaching as you develop your English language and academic skills.

Why did you choose INTO Manchester?

I really want to study at The University of Manchester and INTO provided a good pathway for me there based on my qualifications.

How do you find the style of learning at INTO?

The teachers give you a good amount of time to get work done, and even though the courses are fast paced, when you work hard they are not as challenging as you would expect them to be. The teachers are always offering extra help and support when they see that you need it.

Do you feel you have a good study and social life balance?

I really do - Manchester gives you the opportunity to have an amazing social life, while the students at INTO are very study-orientated. So when you surround yourself with the right people you automatically have a good balance without even trying.

How is it to be in a class with students from all around the world?

It’s one of the reasons I chose INTO, I needed to be in a place that was multicultural and open-minded.

Have you explored Manchester much?

I've found that Manchester has hidden beauty everywhere - each building has so much history behind it, and you can find hidden places to stand and give you a different perspective than how you see it every day. Parkway Gate is in an amazing location, very close to INTO. I can wake up at 9 and make it to my 9:15 class on time, which comes in handy on Monday mornings.

Why did you choose to study Biochemistry?

I chose Biochemistry because I have a deep interest in sciences that help me understand how living things work. And the University of Manchester is a very good accredited university in a city that I love.
