Student life

Manchester is one of the UK’s best cities for students. It is a diverse and thriving city, blending a rich industrial past with a trailblazing future. There are people of all ages and all cultures building their lives here but at its heart, the city retains a proud and distinctly Mancunian identity. The different districts of the city are like discrete villages, easy to get around, and within walking distance of each other. Each part of town has its own character, ambience and particular tribes. Manchester is a truly exhilarating place to come and learn – no wonder so many people stay here after they’ve finished studying.

Campus life

Our campus is designed around our students’ experience, providing them with some of the best learning and teaching facilities in the UK. The University is just a few minutes’ walk from the retail and cultural heart of Manchester and it is easy to get around with the extensive bus, tram and rail network. Manchester and the region are well served by motorways and reliable public transport, so other cities are also within easy reach.
