Overall I like Manchester metropolitan university it has a very urban vibe and has a great range of facilities. Student services are always accessible and helpful. Lectures and sessions are very practical and relevant to future practice.View more
Facilities and resources offered at the university are very varied. They have a wide range of student services to help you with any queries you may have. The Halls accommodation and university buildings are all well kept and modern. It is great that the university is based in the centre of Manchester given it is easily accessible. The only thing I am slightly disappointed about even though most of our lecturers are very enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their subjects. For me, taking Education studies we have had a few problems with tutors on our course as the university has quickly hired people to feel gaps and aren’t as well-informed on the subject as they should be. There are lots of lecturers who are very happy to help and they are willing to dedicate lots of time to organise in meeting you to sort your questions, however, there have been a few lecturers who merely read off the PowerPoint slides and don’t engage students as much as they should. That being said, the university is normally very proactive about how they deal with problems so this can be sorted easily. I thoroughly enjoy my studies at Manchester Metropolitan University, the city and atmosphere are amazing and now I’ve experienced this, I would not want to be anywhere else!View more
The academic facilities and quality of teaching were excellent, interesting lectures and good infrastructures, the location of the uni was perfect, close to both the train station and the centre. plus manchester is one of the biggest student cities, there are four other universities and you get to have all the amenities and freedom of choice in restaurants and activities, and with a very reasonable cost of living. In general MMU is a really open and free thinking place and there are so many opportunities available in all aspects of student life!View more
The business school is large, modern and always looking for new ways to improve. Majority of the tutors are helpful and provide you with any help you need for assignments.
MMU also hosts events for students, giving us the opportunity to speak to potential employers which is useful.
There are also many opportunities to do sports and meet new people. The uni has something called “active campus” where you can turn up and play different sports up to three times per week for free.
One of the things that was surprising to me was that the first year was quite easy in terms of workload. It becomes more challenging in the second and especially third year which prepares you for work life quite well. Another negative, I would say for me, was that there is a lot of group assignments, which I personally do not prefer.View more
What I’ve noticed from the very beginning is the effort that is being made in order to make an overall better student experience. From the very prompt and efficient student service systems to the constant facility and campus upgrades or student engagement, it seems like they are going the extra mile or doing something a lot of universities that take their students for granted have forgotten.
As a CS student, facilities are on point. Always up to date and diverse hardware and software. Modules cover all the essentials and the overall quality of data that you get out of them is good.
The level of difficulty is a downside. It seems like regardless of how good or bad of a student you are, you can pass without to much trouble. So, if you’re a careless student you can go trough the whole thing and learn little to none. It’s obviously a matter of student individuality, but it’s something that can be addressed. Also, professors are okay but every once in a while you might get a bad apple in terms of the teaching quality.View more
The societies are great and seeing as I love Manchester, it’s nice to live in the city itself and be within walking distance of everything. The union can feel a little bit disorganised at times but the societies provided and other services are helpful.View more
I studied at Manchester Metropolitan’s Cheshire branch between 2008 and 2011. I really enjoyed my time there, although I recently found out the campus no longer exists, which was a little devastating. I started not long after the lovely new Booth Hall building had been finished, the rooms were spacious and I lived on the ground floor supporting disabled students. Learning on the Crewe campus was only a short walk away, which I hope is the same for students learning at the main MMU site. The buildings on campus were older, which I found reassuring. In my first year I worked in the older buildings, and spent far too much time in the fantastic library; which was pretty much my basic hangout spot. In the second year the AXIS music and performing arts building opened. It was a great spacious auditorium that took the central area of the new building, and that was where the majority of my lessons took place. Over all the campus was a mix of new and old but it worked, architecturally and structurally. Staff were always on hand to help, or offer support. I would have given the site more than 5 stars for my experience whilst studying. It’s a shame more students won’t have a chance to go there. The only downsides are in 2008 the recession struck, which affected the areas outside of the university, with less shops and less available night life, the onside clubs became super popular, and very busy most nights.View more
I had a great experience at Man Met and my course far exceeded my expectations. The skills I’ve learnt have set me up for a future career. Since completing I feel more confident to go straight into a role in my chosen field. I particularly enjoyed the helpfulness of staff at the university and the interest they showed in helping to develop us ready for our future careers after study. I recommend the university and its great location. Manchester is a great city particularly if you like an active social life!View more
The university have done nothing but support me and help me throughout the most difficult time of my life. I have really enjoyed my time here. There have been many occasions where they have gone out of their way to support me and I will always be grateful for the amazing support system.View more
I absolutely loved my time at MMU and in Manchester. Mmu has outstanding facilities to aid you in university life and is helped by being located in the centre of Manchester which is an amazing and beautiful city.View more
