Students praise 'great' MMU resources

National Student Survey 2007

MMU’s learning resources are among the best in the country, according to a major student survey.

Electronic libraries, cutting-edge Web CT and universal WiFi are just some of our stand out facilities as MMU learning becomes increasingly anytime, anyplace.

82% of students agreed or strongly agreed that the University’s learning resources were excellent in a poll conducted by Ipsos UK for the Higher Education Funding Council for England. Around 3,000 MMU students contributed their views to the official survey.

MMU’s latest resource is a £500,000 European and Asian languages suite with interpreting facilities and multi-channel satellite link using a state-of-the-art infra red system. The stunning ‘lounge’ is designed around student-centred learning with informal seating areas.

Other fantastic facilities include:

    • Lecture theatres in science and engineering and law and humanities display some of the most advanced audio-visual features in higher education and have been praised by disabled students, in particular.
    • The virtual learning environment accessed by 29,000 students which allows access to study material, lectures and information via PCs and mobile hardware.
    • New science laboratories enable students to follow experiments and audio visuals on individual LCD screens and CCTV in the behavioural sciences laboratory enables remote viewing of animal and insect behaviour.

MMU achieved improvements in all areas of the National Student Survey. For more about NSS go to
