Results from the Proud to be at Manchester Met campaign

The University launched a ‘Proud to be at Manchester Met’ project on 5th December 2016, where we visited faculties and engaged with students.

The aim of the campaign was to encourage students to express what makes them proud to be at Manchester Met, and share their stories and best experiences of their student journey so far.

We received over 530 comments from Manchester Met students and 25 images of students with quotes, which were posted on the University’s social media channels.

The top three areas which are important to our students and what they are most proud of were:
