After a century of collaboration, UMIST and the Victoria combined to form Britain's largest single-site university in 2004, with more than 500 degree programmes catering for more than 39,000 students taught by around 4,000 full-time academics. Built, as it says, on the shoulders of giants, it boasts 25 Nobel laureates.
