Some assistive technology software, such as Inspiration and Texthelp Read and Write, has been installed as standard on the Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) student network so that disabled and non-disabled students may all benefit from using it.

A peer mentoring scheme has been set up by the Learner Development Service and the Widening Participation team to offer all prospective and first year students who have a disability, health condition or dyslexia the opportunity to have a student mentor. The mentor will be able to help new students to MMU make the transition into university and through the first year of their studies. The Mentor can offer practical advice and support, based on their own experiences of studying at MMU and knowledge of university and local services.

MMU offers a £1000 Student Support Package for new UK full time first year students starting their course in September 2015 from households with an income up to and including £25 000. An Academic Achievement Bursary of £1500 is also offered to students joining in 2015 with good grades at A level and GCSE Mathematics and English. If a student performs well on course they could be eligible for the Academic Achievement Award in years 2 and 3 of their course, which is worth up to £1500.

If a student runs into financial difficulty on course at MMU they may be eligible for additional support through the Access to Learning Fund - see
