To Know, Love and Serve God





At UCEN Manchester we are here to support you as you take your next steps, helping you build the skills you need and to achieve the qualification that will shape your future career. We are proud holders of the Teaching Excellence framework (TEF) Silver Status in recognition of our excellent programmes and quality teaching and learning. Everything we do is about preparing you for a successful career. 93% of our students go on to work or further study within six months of leaving UCEN Manchester.                  


This year has seen a massive shift to blended learning approaches, which for some has hugely compromised the student experience expected from universities. Which is why this year, more than perhaps any other, choosing a smaller higher education institution for your degree a great choice.

Our student population is diverse in age, experience and background, which means you don’t just learn from your tutors but your peers as well.
