University of Manchester

Pros

What are the best things about studying at your university?

2018

"There are great facilities including an excellent library and learning spaces. There's also a generally high standard of teaching (especially for languages), a good course structure and a great careers service with an excellent mentorship scheme and career help."
"Firstly, the social aspect. Manchester offers a Russel Group level education without having to sacrifice your social life. I'm yet to find a student city I enjoy more. Also, when I applied, Manchester was the only place that allowed me to get an integrated masters degree with a year in industry in four years, rather than the usual five, saving massively on my tuition fee costs."
"It is such an exciting university with so much going on all the time. The sports facilities are amazing at the Armitage Centre and it is so close to my halls in Fallowfield. I loved that I was able to study French with biomedical science. My French lecturers are amazing and we have small group seminars, so I feel I benefit from that a lot."
"We've got good facilities and a great library. The laboratories are also good and the student support is strong."
"The professional lecturers and staff, good facilities and multiple sources for studying. I also like all the opportunities to gain extracurricular experience."

2016

"The social life. The city is amazing and hugely student orientated. It's also a very relaxed environment to work in."
"It has a good reputation among employers and a 24-hour study building."
"Manchester is a vibrant city and one of the most up-and-coming areas outside of London. It has loads to offer and, since I was big into music, Manchester was a great place to go. The university also has the highest employability rate in the UK."
"It's so diverse, you see people from all walks of life and make amazing friendships. It's really welcoming and friendly around here."
"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!"
"It's a great city with a lot to offer. Staff at the university are friendly if you choose to use their help and the reputation is great."
"It's set in the centre of an amazing city, Manchester, which is very beneficial to my degree in architecture as it is rich in architecture and culture. There are excellent facilities, I love living in the city and have met some amazing friends."
"The city of Manchester itself really surprised me as I had never been before and knew very little about it. It has grown to be the thing I love most about being here due to its diverse culture. I now can't imagine attending university somewhere without such a vast range of bars, nights out, restaurants, comedy clubs, art and cinema venues and more."
"Everyone at the university is willing to help you. The atmosphere is friendly and it's easy to network with people within and outside of your course."
"It's beautiful and in a pretty student-friendly area. It's easily accessible as well as having a number of exciting activities nearby to take part in during your spare time."
"The department and university is big so it attracts a lot of great academic staff and has great facilities."
"It helps with employment and is ranked very well by employers. The geography course really interests me and it's great."
