The University of Manchester
7.0 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 72 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"There is a very wide range of sports clubs from surfing to yoga, as well as other kinds of societies (drama, pirates society, debating society etc). Also, free sport activities are provided by the university in halls of residence during particular days of the week. There is always something to do in Manchester, sometimes so much that you can't decide between your options."
