The calibre of my fellow students was high and I enjoyed meeting people from all over the world. Some of the modules were not relevant to the current economic world order and much of the reference material was published before the Great Financial Crash or Digital Revolution. The facilities are utterly disgusting. Mice, no air con, poor Wifi and overflowing toilets. You are locked up for 16 hours a day in a Victorian school house that looks like a prison. Windows can’t be opened because of traffic noise. By late afternoon in summer the atmosphere and smell is overwhelming. The online lectures are a joke; poorly prepared, badly delivered, ponderous, repetitive, and irrelevant most of the time. Exam questions are referred to an online notice board which is simply ignored. Do yourself a favour and scrutinise this institution closely before you make a choice. Do not be persuaded by ‘the Manchester Method’ which is fictitious. The School prides itself on its FT ranking but is strangely mute on the subject of the Economist rating which is below Strathclyde Poly and similarly august seats of learning.
