Welcome to the University of Manchester PPE website!

Message from the President

Welcome to the University of Manchester PPE Society. PPE at Manchester is one of the largest and most diverse PPE courses offered in the UK and it is accompanied by a strong and active student society. We are known across campus for being one of the most sociable, ambitious and integrated courses throughout the university. 

Therefore, upon your arrival in Manchester, I urge you to become fully involved with the society. Throughout the year we run regular social events, from the Welcome Curry and the PPE Holiday to the End of Year Ball, and we also host careers events. All of these are a fantastic opportunity to meet fellow students, especially first years who are in the same position as you, so do come along!  Furthermore, as a Society we run a Peer Mentoring scheme to support you with your academic life as well as general questions you may have about university life, and you will meet your mentors in Freshers' Week. The committee will also be meeting you all during Freshers’ Week to explain everything and you'll have a chance to ask us any questions you may have then, so don't worry if this is a lot to digest.

On a larger scale, you have chosen to attend university in the best city for students in the UK, and I hope you're excited to get here! With a huge city-based campus it is easy to make the most of what Manchester has to offer. Manchester is known for having a fantastic night life, playing host to many festivals, having a huge shopping area, a diverse and fabled music scene, hosting world famous sports teams and events and having a growing business and political centre. Furthermore, there are countless vintage shops and quaint cafes and lunch spots; however you choose to spend your three years in Manchester, I’m sure you won’t be bored.

Finally, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Moving away from home to come to university is a daunting experience but the Society is here to help you with all of your concerns- as well as being the perfect place to meet like-minded people in the same situation. As already mentioned, I encourage you to become fully immersed in the PPE Society. I'm certain you will make friends for life within our ranks!

Sam Sayer

President of the Society 2017/18
