A lot of mentoring from industry experts, and volunteers to provide you with help you may need. A lot of fun mini side events, challenges and team building sessions. Of course food, drinks, and swag are provided all completely free of charge!
We are tech societies from The University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan University We are extremely passionate about hackathons and tech events and we have run GreatUniHack successfully for 3 years in Manchester. As well as some other events like workshops and meetups. Check out our rich history.
As this event spans overnight, GreatUniHack is restricted to students above the age of 18. Proof of ID is required to participate. If you graduated during the last 12 months you're still considered a student. Any more than that and you'll have to email us as we deal with these on a case-by-case basis.
Bring your laptop, phone and chargers. Other things to consider: spare clothes, adapters, hardware and a sleeping bag, oh and don't forget your enthusiasm!
We are going to provide you with all food, swag and drinks you will need to keep you going.
Definitely. Networking with and seeing awesome hackers in action will expose you to a tremendous amount of knowledge. We also have an amazing suit of industry experts and mentors that are happy to assist you! Still unsure? Then please read this.
You own all the rights to your intellectual property. We won't claim any right over anything made during this event.
Don't let that discourage you ― it is actually part of the fun! You will have 3 new friends by the end of the weekend. A team building session will be organized to help you form teams. We encourage everyone to use Devpost to find teammates.
Organized by a new team that formed a partnership with Major League Hacking, the second edition of GreatUniHack brought together 180 hackers from 5 different European countries. 52 projects were submitted by the end of the 36th hour.
A 12 hours event that is focused on learning. With a total of 24 workshops, 150 aspiring computer scientists from all across Manchester came to take part in this educational, hacky environment.
