What is it like to study in Manchester?

Be part of where the arts meet business meets science, and where applied research informs academic rigour, in one of the busiest and best student cities on the planet.

Where the world is on your doorstep; from arts, culture, history, music and theatre, to a world of sports at all levels, and where an entrepreneurial spirit abounds; an amazing choice of food, drink and entertainment, and where the most fashionable students are seen.

Here, there and everywhere

Getting in and out of Manchester is a breeze. Rail and road links are great, and the city is handily placed for all manner of events and attractions. Manchester Airport is the third busiest airport in Britain after Gatwick and Heathrow, with direct flights all over the world. For some picture-postcard scenery, the Lake District and Snowdonia National Park are a little more than an hour away.

Having said that, you've got everything you need right here in Manchester - from pubs and clubs, to food and football, to culture and entertainment, to art and architecture, and much more besides.
