Welcome to the INTO Manchester Learning Centre


Hello and Welcome

On this opening page is where you’ll find all the latest news from the Learning Centre.

This portal is here to give you easy access to many online learning resources and websites, including: online journals and databases, key news, competitions and much, much more!

We hope it will help you with your studies here at INTO Manchester and that it will become one of your favourite sites.

Make sure you read this page regularly!

Welcome! Hello! Hiya!


And so we begin our new term.

The warmest welcome to all our new students. This is  our favourite time of the year as we get to meet you all.

If you are feeling lost, puzzled, a bit lonely, cold (!),  or  simply want to tell us about your home country as you settle in, please come and make  yourself known to us here in the Learning Centre on the 2nd Floor.

We have information on interesting places to visit in Manchester-  plus magazines, nespapers, DVDS – and all the textbooks you will need to succeed.

Come and say hello!

Eid Greetings

Eid Mubarak to any students celebrating Eid al-Adha (Id ul-Adha).  Enjoy your day- we have chocolates to share in the Learning Centre on Friday 1st September.

Summer Book Reviews

Over the summer months of July and August, sitting outside in the warm British weather (!), a prefect time to sit and read……

We are asking students to share your thoughts about the book you have read in our special Summer Book Review Challenge.

Students are asked to fill in details of  your favourite book and then explain why they like it on our special sheets.  There will be a prize (a book token) at the end of summer for the “best” review  and all students who produce 3 or more reviews,  will get an INTO Manchester Book Reviewer Certificate.

Book reviews will be put on our Book Review board in the library for other students to read so you can share your favourites.

And if you want to make a video to “speak” your views- even better! Just ask the library staff how to do this!
