Welcome to MANCENT,

The Manchester Continuing Education Network (MANCENT), is a loose network of independent lecturers and students with a firm belief that Continuing Education at a high level should be available to all who want it.

It tries to match interested students with highly qualified and experienced Continuing Education and Universiy lecturers in the Arts and Sciences.

 How it works:

MANCENT operates as a loose network allowing independent self-employed lecturers to choose their own fees and venues, while offering students the convenience of a one stop shop when looking for courses in their field of interest, by offering a joint listing of all events.

Register your interest as a student


Spring 2014:

Dear all,

We have recently been informed that our long-standing colleague Alison Jones, who many of you know from her theatre trips and tours to London and Edinburgh, died after a long illness. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time. I am sure, you will agree, when I say that her kind ways and inspiring lectures will be missed by many of us.

Yours sincerely,

Birgitta Hoffmann
