I’m a first year Management student at The University of Manchester. I’m really satisfied with the social life here, people are friendly and helpful. I especially love how flexible the course is and how practical the material we learn is. I love the university facilities as well as how well they are equipped. In the Allen Gilbert learning commons, which is one of the main learning hubs in the university there is even a bed to help students on their learning journey. To add to this it is open 24 hours, which is quite helpful. The environment here supports the learning process.View more
Great to practice English.
Huge amount of easily accessible opportunities next to your studies.
Vibrant city with the possibility to try almost anything. In my case Volleyball, Tango and swimming before lectures.
You can find people to party and also like minded people that are entrepreneurial, etc.
The bad side is the expenses. The cost of studying, eating, going out, etc. Is quite tremendous. In Germany everything is subsidised from the food on campus to printing your lecture slides. In Manchester it feels like they want to earn money of you (university as a business). Overall great experience and right choice.
I really think Manchester can be an amazing place for a student. I was unfortunate enough not to have my own Business School building, which meant that i was not very close with my course mates.
The vibe is nice, the lecturers are nice. It was a 3 year holiday to be honest.View more
I have had an amazing time at the university so far, in particular with the extracurricular societies, I highly recommend joining a career focused group like Manchester Entrepreneurs. Here I have been able to come into my element to grow my network and make life long friends. The course content has been a particularly engaging experience and overall the lessons have enlightening. I would highly recommend coming to Manchester.View more
Despite the high tuition fees I enjoy the university experience overall. Especially in my first year I had quite some to spend on extracurricular activities. Since there are 100000 students across Manchester you can find and get involved in all the activities you want to pursue. Thus, I experienced a healthy work life balance so far. The overall living costs are bearable. However it would be great to have a greater offer of discounted meals across campus. The value of the course depends heavily on the charisma of the lecturer. If you are lucky and have an inspiring professor you enjoy the module but you can be unlucky as well. Overall the university offers great opportunities and is a very good place to study.View more
I recommend this university as it is one of the biggest in UK, and you can easily feel it. The south part of the city, along Oxford-road, belongs to the students. You are surrounded by like-minded people. I would say that what you learn at university is valuable, and I deeply enjoy my degree, but the purpose of this adventure is to meet new people and create connections. Discover the world, and most important, yourself.View more
