MMU in Top 3 city destinations

MMU is the third most exciting destination for students, according to a national survey of 10,000 undergraduates.

The survey, by the research company Opinionpanel, asked first-years to reflect on their experiences during the application process and how they perceived their university.

MMU was ranked third in the UK in the “perceived most exciting city” category ahead of Newcastle, Cardiff, Liverpool, Edinburgh and the London universities, apart from University College London, which ranked No1.

Students across the country were asked to rate their university’s approach to admissions, the location and the campus facilities.

With more than 28,000 students in Manchester (plus 5,000 in Cheshire) MMU is a large and vibrant student destination in one of Europe’s most exciting and progressive cities, recognised for its art, music, architecture, sport and nightlife.

Sarah Hardy, president of MMU Student Union said: “Manchester is the place to be at the moment – for fun, inspiration and job opportunities.”
