Met Magazine: introducing the Autumn/Winter 2016 issue

INTRODUCING the second edition of Met Magazine – our magazine for alumni, staff, friends, contacts and partners of the University.

Following the successful launch of the revamped magazine back in Spring, we received fantastic feedback from lots of you who enjoyed the bigger and bolder publication.

We have looked to build on the inaugural edition and continue to showcase our talented students and graduates, impactful research, inspiring teaching and growing partnerships.

In this packed Autumn/Winter 2016 edition, you can find out about our new First Generation campaign, learn about our digital revolutionaries and follow our forensic experts as they debunk popular TV misconceptions.

You can also find a fascinating five-page interview with our new Chancellor, Lord Mandelson, articles on new DevoManc health strategies, and find out about the art stars of the future, as well as the usual favourites in our opinion section, food and culture pages, and, of course, the latest University news.

In total, 22,000 copies have been delivered to alumni and 4,000 copies sent to key locations and businesses around the region. The digital edition has been delivered to a further 56,000 alumni.

The magazine was conceived, developed and produced in-house by Marketing, Communications and Development.

Helen Keefe, Director of Marketing, Communications and Development, said: “The Autumn/Winter edition of Met Magazine is full of fascinating interviews, articles and images.

“The magazine allows us to showcase the brilliant work that goes on at Manchester Metropolitan and builds on the success of the first issue. As one of our key publications, Met Magazine helps us to connect with our valued alumni, friends, partners and key stakeholders across the city and globally.

“We hope you enjoy reading it.”

The first issue, published in Spring, also available online, replaced Success magazine. Met Magazine boasts more pages, a new design and in-depth features. This bigger, better magazine showcases the talented students and graduates, fantastic research and depth of knowledge at the University.

Copies of the magazine will be available at student hubs and reception desks, or by emailing
