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 University 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.

All the Spring Courses are now online. If you receive a paper copy, they were posted on the 18th December and should be with you soon.

Please, take a look at our current programme, which you can find by clicking the drop-down menus or by downloading the booklet version of the catalogue:  MANCENTSpring2019.

All courses can be booked by completing the MANCENT booking form and accompanying it with a cheque for the correct fee to the course lecturer (or if that is not possible to the Course Director).

    Due to the adverse weather conditions this week, a number of courses had to be cancelled, we are in the process of rescheduling these lectures and will advertise the new dates here.
    The day school “Ramesses the Great – Pharao of the Exodus” on Saturday 3rd has been moved to Saturday 24th March.
    There are still places available on this course.

    Hi Birgitta,
    Once again, thanks for the fantastic courses and study days! I’m really looking forward to them. Please can you kindly tell me how to book for the
    2017 MANCENT conference: Rivers, Roman Harbours and the Roman Army, on 23rd December? Also, do you ever run classes for beginners’ Latin, and will there be a study day on the Archaeology of Iceland, in the Winter?

    Unfortunately, we were just informed that Martin Jervis will have to take a sabbatical this autumn. We wish him a speedy recovery and look forward to his return next spring.
