Manchester is the best place to study for it's location because there's everything you could possibly want... and lots of it! Whether your idea if a night out is a bar, pub, restaurant or club - there's a massive variety to choose from for everyone. Foodies can enjoy any kind of cuisine late into the night with delivery through UberEATS and delivroo too! Alternatively you can go for the luxury experience of dining out or indulge yourself on a saturday night by nipping into the nearest takeaway no further than 10 minutes from anywhere you live. With almost every shop under the sun spread throughout the city, you'll be burning holes in your pockets (giving you another excuse to buy a new pair of jeans whilst you're at it!) and don't forget the various forms of entertainment. Go for a spa day, a comedy club night, crazy golfing, to the cinema or even up a hot air balloon. The opportunities in Manchester are endless. And when better to enjoy such a glorious city than whilst making new friends at uni.

Manchester offers plenty, that caters for all. The city is filled with great bars/venues, that consistently offer quality nights. Even going in to fourth year, I am still finding entire new areas of town that I had never been to before. Areas of note are the northern quarter, didsbury and chorlton (and probably plenty more that I haven’t yet stumbled upon) for great bars, restaurants and music venues.

Manchester has places for everybody!! There is Curry Mile that is known for its Middle Easter Food and amazing currys. There is China town in city center and Northern Quarter which is more quarky and have lots of independent shops. There are a lot of main stream shops in city center and Oxford Road is packed with supermarkets so it is really good. One of the highlight is deffinitely the movie theater (THE VUE) it is only 4.99 for one movie which is really amazing!! There are lots of night out clubs and bars and especially Gay Village is lots of fun!!

Manchester is a very student based area / city and therefore has plenty of student friendly and discounted areas if you attend the university. In terms of shopping and eating out, Manchester is one of the best cities as it has several shopping centres and all the main shops within walking distance from the university. It terms of nights out there really is something for everyone as there is a more posh/expensive area in Deansgate and several cheaper areas around the city. I have given it only three starts because I am not really a city girl however I do enjoy coming up to Manchester.

Manchester is the UK’s musical capital, with good reason. The nightlife is absolutely incredible, no matter what time or what day there’s always something going on. Cocktails, minigolf, clubbing, eating, shopping and all that topped with the friendly mancunian feeling of togetherness, I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else!

I started MMU in 2012 and I fell in love with the city straight away. It’s friendly, has plenty of places to eat and party and overall has a good vibe! My fave place to go out is NQ as I enjoy a chilled vibe when I’m having a few drinks with friends. The warehouse project is another great thing Manchester has to offer, putting on sick nights showing the best DJ’s. 10/10 would recommend.

Manchester has many pros - great nights out, there’s lots to do in town, very multicultural, great public transport system, plenty of different types of food. Arndale and Trafford centre are not too far and have a great range of choices.

This is a brilliant place to live. If you like going to gigs then every band comes to Manchester and there are loads of great venues. You can go for a night out whenever you like as there is always somewhere good open.

I lived in Fallowfield in Manchester and it was a really lovely student area. There are loads of places to get food nearby and a huge Sainburys, there are places in Fallowfield to go out and there is great nightlife in Manchester.

Manchester is an excellent city in which to attend university due to the great quality of teaching at the universities, buzzing nightlife, vast range of cultures and the sheer amount of activities to explore both in the city centre and surrounding areas.

Loads to do in the city, loads going on all the time. The uni is so close to everything which is really convenient. Nightlife is really good, lots of variety depending on your music taste.

Vibrant nightlife—many student venues. Plenty of shopping options with the Arndale in the city centre. Many sources of affordable transportation make Manchester very accessible. There are many cheap shopping options, along with an abundance of student food deals at restaurants weekly.

Something about Manchester is truely magical and makes you never want to leave! Home to both a red brick and a met uni as well as music collages and other universities in surrounding areas such as Salford, Manchester is full of students and you will fit right in! Starting with night life, there is truely something for everyone. From raves and drum and base events to deansgate locks for getting all dressed up and a whole street of gay clubs where you can really let your hair down and everything in between. Next is the food available. Where do I even begin?! Manchester is full of both chain and independent restaurants and coffee shops serving every cuisine you can imagine. If I was to tell you where most of my student loan got spent, I’d start with the independent quirky restaurants in the northern quarter. Transport in Manchester is great too. With one of the busiest routes in UK, up and down the curry mile couldn’t be easier. Buses run every 10 mins straight through the student hub of fallowfield straight into the city centre for only £1.50 each way or a one year student rider which is defiantly worth the upfront cost! I could go on all day about how much I love Manchester, would recommend it to anyone!!!!!

I went to the University of Salford and loved my experience. The location is perfect as it's only a short bus ride away from the city centre (around a 20 minute walk) and there's buses frequently. The night life in Mamchester is great and there's always something to do. Shopping is also a bonus as Manchester Arndale and the Trafford Centre are a bus ride away.
