PREFACE.

In the year 1786, a number of Gentlemen of station and influence in the town and neighbourhood of Manchester, united themselves for the establishment of an Institution which should afford a full and systematic course of Academical Education for Divines, and preparatory instruction for other learned professions, as well as for civil and commercial life; and which should be open to young men of every religious denomination, from whom no test or confession of faith should be required. In pursuance of this plan, a set of academical buildings was erected, and courses of lectures were delivered till 1803, when circumstances connected with the Theological department occasioned the removal of the institution to York.

One of the most important of these changes is the connexion in which it has been placed with the UNIVERSITY OF LONDON.

According to the Regulations of the University, those who have matriculated and have subsequently passed two years in study in Manchester New College will be entitled to become candidates for the degree of B. A., and after the expiration of another academical year, of M. A. The advantages to be derived from these degrees are not confined to
