Manchester is going places. Its renaissance is hallmarked by a rising international profile and population – quite simply it’s the fastest growing city in the UK.
Internationally renowned as the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution and the computer, The University of Manchester is today pioneering the development of graphene – a ‘miracle material’ that is set to revolutionize the 21st Century.
