Our tradition of excellence has been established by many eminent teachers and researchers, including 11 Nobel Prize winners, such as Rutherford, Bohr, Bragg, and Blackett.

Our aims are:
The School has research interests which cover almost all of modern physics, and each year about 200 papers are published in research journals. We make extensive use of national and international research facilities such as CERN in Geneva. In the most recent research assessment exercise (RAE 2008), 85% of the School's research was rated as of international quality, with 20% world-leading. The volume of world-leading and internationally excellent research places the School 5th in the UK.
The International Team offers support and guidance for international students, sponsors and other organisations over a range of University matters.
The team is subdivided into the International Office and the International Relations department.The International Office:

The University of Manchester is large, yet compact enough to give the best of both worlds: a city life and a campus community.
Our campus occupies a large area close to the city centre. It is dominated by grand Victorian and more modern buildings, but also has quiet corners, landscaped gardens, cafes and common rooms where you can relax and spend time with friends. We have places of worship for the majority of faiths.
