Manchester Leadership Programme

The Manchester Leadership Programme (MLP) is unique to the University of Manchester and provides students with the opportunity to enhance their university experience, while giving something back to the wider community.

MLP students learn about the challenges facing society in the 21st century, and the leadership approaches needed to address them, both in theory and in real-world practice. The programme also helps students to develop the skills and experiences that graduate employers seek.

The MLP was established in 2005 by the late Professor Alan Gilbert, former president and Vice Chancellor of the University of Manchester.
