Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.
The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.

Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.
We do consider transfers from students enrolled on different programmes in the University of Manchester or who want to transfer their studies from another University.    In some instances students can transfer direct into level two of the programme.  They must meet the entry criteria and have taken similar units to those taken by our first year students. We would need a transcript of units taken and marks achieved. We will also take up academic references.

Edmond Leung says 'Textiles is a globachelorl business and the University of Manchester is one of the best universities in the world for the study of textiles. The teaching staff and technicians give lots of support and professional ideas to help with my studies. This enables me to better understand the difficult concepts presented during this course. They are always willing to give students the benefit of their often extensive industrial experience.  Textiles Science and Technology has a huge range of career opportunities. These might include working as a professional scientist, merchandiser, sales manager or a project coordinator.'
Emily Withers says 'The course is unique to Manchester and the fact that it is a top university meant that I knew I wanted to apply here'
We have a new dedicated CAD suite, fashion retail studio, access to textile and clothing process laboratories which include knitting and weaving facilities, multi-media and digital printing centre.
We are unique amongst UK Universities in that we have world class facilities for manufacturing textiles, including Jacquard weaving, computerised flat-bed knitting, digital printing and nano-fibre manufacturing.  This enables students to develop products in-house from fibres to the finished product.  We also have extensive testing and analysis facilities, ie electron microscopy and X-ray tomography.  You will understand all the properties of materials as you will have been involved in production at every level.  You will be familiar on graduation with fire-retardant, ecological and colour properties of materials, how they behave on the body and in furnishings.
