IMI's UK validating partner Manchester Metropolitan University has been named The Sunday Times University of the Year for Student Retention.

The award, which is part of the annual Sunday Times Good University Guide, recognises the University’s success in supporting students to achieve their ambition and successfully complete their studies through to graduation.

Announcing the award, Alastair McCall, editor of The Sunday Times Good University Guide, said: “Manchester Metropolitan’s success as this year’s University of the Year for Student Retention is unprecedented. It is very hard for large institutions to perform well on degree completion rates, doubly so for socially inclusive ones which by definition admit students with a higher risk of dropping out.

“For Manchester Met to win our award is an acknowledgement of its success in getting hundreds of students each year through to graduation who would have probably dropped out if they studied elsewhere.”

Commenting on the achievement, Manchester Met's Pro-Vice-Chancellor International Prof. Jennifer Watling explained: "As an anchor institution in Greater Manchester, and a university that draws many of its students from the city-region and beyond, we take our responsibility to those students very seriously.

"Our student-centred approach to supporting success is particularly important for a generation of students who will face the realities of a post-Covid employment market and, in that context, mental wellbeing, academic achievement, and career planning are all interconnected."

We would like to take this opportunity to offer our congratulations to all the staff and students at Manchester Met. for this remarkable achievement and to wish them every on-going success in the future.
