The university had a great campus. It had a touch of both city and country elements to it. Academic staff members were so helpful. They would answer students’ queries so swiftly and comprehensively. It had a great 24hr learning grid which is located so close to many student accommodations.View more
I have generally enjoyed it, and have been able to do things that outside of university wouldn’t have been possible, though I’ve often felt that I have not had the full backing of my faculty and often wonder if I made the right decision. That is, my experience of studying my course has not made me enjoy the subject more than I did previously; it has only bettered my understanding.
The careers department organises many guest speakers and careers fairs, as well as workshops which have been beneficial in my job search.
Academic support is generally very good, however, the counselling service is drastically understaffed. However, this is the case with most all universities I believe and is cognisant with the government’s stance on mental health.
The accommodation is close to the university, very comfortable. Not so large that I can entertain more than a few people.Terrific. Manchester is large enough to offer everything and yet small enough that you do not feel lost. Also considerably cheaper than London.

My first year at University of Manchester was fun with loads with an abundance of social life besides the extremely qualified faculty in their respective fields. With so many streams to chose from, they enable you to follow your choice of path within your subject area from day 1 while at the same time ensuring that the students have the required minimum knowledge in the subject area through the compulsory modules. The choice of socities at this university is also quite rich. Apart from the location, I think my University is just as good as a high bitch London University.View more

UoM is renowned for its research and you can definitely feel its pedigree when walking around campus with its mix of new and old historical buildings especially with the recent developments of the SU and business school. The courses are well taught and put much emphasis on an individual study which I personally enjoy although I’ve found many modules rely heavily on textbooks which cost a lot of money which isn’t really justified when you only use them for the 10 week duration of the module especially when many have online copies available. In terms of student life, Fallowfield is definitely party central and much of the social scene is centred around there. Although Fallowfied can be fun it can get very hectic at times so if you want something quieter then Victoria Park is your best bet.View more
