Welcome from AMBS

We want you to enjoy the course units you study at Alliance Manchester Business School and to feel part of the student life at the School. We will do everything we can to make sure you have a positive student experience with us – both in and out of the classroom – and leave University not just with a high quality degree but also with lots of great memories.

The amount of information you have to take in during your first few weeks at university can be a bit daunting. If you’re taking Alliance Manchester Business School course units but studying on a degree programme from outside of the School, there is even more to remember – another set of processes, people, places, rules and regulations. That’s where this online handbook comes in.

It’s designed to help you understand where your programme fits in, navigate round the various Alliance MBS processes you’ll need to be involved in and find out how we can support you throughout your studies. It gives you an idea of what you can expect from Alliance MBS and what Alliance MBS and The University of Manchester expects from its students.

All you need to know about studying at Alliance MBS will be in this handbook so please read it carefully – you might not need information on exam processes right now for example, but you’ll know where to find it when you do.

The online handbook is essential reading for all students from outside of the School who are taking one of our course units as a formal part of their degree (i.e. Business and Management for all Programmes) or as an optional choice (BMaP or MEC courses), and is a valuable resource that will help you throughout your studies.

We hope you have a challenging, rewarding and above all, enjoyable year!
