In a few words
"It's in Manchester, an incredible city with so much on offer that it's impossible to get bored. I've been here for three years and I never want to leave! You get the feeling of being on a campus as all of the buildings are close together on one main site, but you have the rest of the city at your feet as well. Manchester wants you to have a big social life so, if going out is your thing, then you've definitely come to the right place. There's also non-stop gigs, galleries, theatre performances, quirky cafes and amazing bars!"
