What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer when you browse the Manchester International College website, if you agree. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the website which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse our website and also allows us to improve our site.

The cookies do not collect additional information about you and do not in any way compromise the security of your computer. None of the information can be traced to an individual person, and the cookie only relates to activity on our websites. 

How we use cookies?

We use cookies on our website for the following purposes:

Statistics – we are interested in knowing how many people are accessing our websites, how often they visit and from which countries. We also want to know which pages are most popular and which of our marketing activities are bringing relevant traffic to our websites. The cookies do not contain any personal information. We use Google Analytics & Google Adwords to record and analyse this data, and we use the results of our analysis to improve our websites.

Content targeting – by recording which pages on our website a user has previously looked at we can present more relevant content and promotions when they come back to the website. These cookies do not contain any personal information.


Functionality – when a website user fills in a form or expresses an interest in one of courses or centres we use this information to create a profile for that user. The profile is stored in a secure database and a unique cookie is written to the client computer which allows us to retrieve information from the stored profile in order to provide enhanced website functionality like pre-filling an application form that has not yet been submitted. The cookie that provides access to the profile does not contain any personal information.
