In-depth feedback from lecturers when marking work. This has helped me to really develop my skills as a student. Despite being a big uni, there is lots of staff, so the student-staff ratio is just as with any other uni. UOM has a world-renowned reputation ranking 27th in the world, and 4th in the UK. Love it hereView more
A good uni although I feel as a student not enough resources / time is provided to each student, which is understandable from such a big uni but also could still be improved on, tint changes can make a large difference.View more
The University of Manchester is one of the biggest in the UK, if not the biggest and when you arrive you can tell. The University runs in and around the city centre, you have more than one library and you are close to parks and bars to chill out with your friends. The facilities are numerous, there are plenty of computer rooms to choose from and a 24-hour library for those nights you need to go that extra mile. Alongside this there are a number of societies which you can take part in and a number of rooms in the Student Union which you can use, making use of speakers, projectors microphone if you have booked in advance. The student bar used to be cheaper but the price has shot up in recent years, the student price can only be attained upon showing a recent student card. Also, the toilets in the student union are unisex and sometimes this tends to invite some unpleasant sights and odours. There are toilets on each floor so you can always escape an unsightly one – don’t worry!
There are microwaves to heat up food, 2 water stations which if filled, are handy to use.
It’s a university which mixes the old and new together. Kinda coolView more
Lecturers very happy to discuss areas of interest. Department is very focused on adjusting the syllabus based on what is happening.
The constant adjustment of the teaching material keeps the course engaging and aligned to the current state of the world.
I attended the university of manchester for my undergraduate degree. I found their pastoral care excellent for when I went through difficult periods, whilst their teaching was great both through the level of resources available for us but also the engagement of the lecturers. The library facilities are also very good, both socially and educationally. The student lifestyle is by far the best thing about the university, with all my friends being jealous of the experience!View more
It has got a lovely community, very understanding administration and a great teaching staff. It is situated bang in the middle of the city. The career opportunities from what I’ve heard are great, my industrial year shall certainly be a testimony to that.View more
The University of Manchester is great in terms of student support. They’re really there for you whatever you need, professional and friendly whatever your circumstances. They also offer interdisciplinary units which means if you’re on a certain course, you can take some modules from another course for example if you’re doing Biology you can take a History unit or a language unit. I think this is great because it’s not generally a thing in the Uk like it is in other countries such as America. They also provide lots of support with graduate careers and also student jobs while at university.View more
I think the University is really great. There’s a lot of communication between staff and students in terms of what is happening throughout the week/month/year and what work students need to be focusing on. There’s also been a lot of support offered to students during this pandemic especially from the Psychology staff. The online resources are really helpful for students to complete work and keep up to date and there’s a big community of friendly people at this university. The accommodation is great but some aren’t as good and become rowdy especially at the start of the year. There could be more to support international students and the costs they have to pay.View more
The university is very supportive outside of lectures by providing many opportunities to look into future careers such as by hosting careers fairs, sending regular emails about any relevant career openings.View more
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
