At UCM, we're proud to have a wide range of research events and initiative. 

Research Vannin

Research Vannin is a hub to support and develop the conduct and value of research on the Isle of Man.

Our goal is to facilitate collaboration between on and off-Island researchers, promote the reputation of island-based research, and educate through the provision workshops and in the future, with an online repository of Isle of Man focused research papers and reports.

Manx Graduate Survey

If you're a Manx graduate who has either completed their degree on-Island through us or who has chosen to study off-Island, or you're a young professional who has stayed or returned to the Island, we'd like your views about ‘The Isle of Man; a great place to live and work’. The survey is now closed and findings will be published shortly.
