The university of Manchester is great for so many reasons! Firstly the quality of the courses ( I did geography) is high, with very enthusiastic and supportive staff. Moreover, the campus is beautiful with the perfect blend of old and new buildings, halls were super cheap compared to my friends at other unis. Most importantly the city itself is unreal with something for everyone and all types of people, so your spoilt for choice in terms of friends and how you spend your time! If you want a good balance of fun as well we as a highly values degree, I can’t recommend Manchester enough.

The University of Manchester has a unique ability to be a centre of excellence and an outstanding place to thrive academically, whilst still retaining a relaxed, friendly environment. Being situated in arguably the greatest city in the UK only adds to a student's experience here. And student life in Fallowfield seems to be like no other 'student village' in the country. However, the university is very large, and Manchester is quite a large city. This may leave some students feeling overwhelmed if this is something they are not suited to.

Psychology course - could be a lot more guidance in terms of assessment but teaching was good overall. Careers service hold a lot of events and support in terms of career development and help with part time jobs while you study at the university

I find the university experience in Manchester excellent. Lecturers are supportive, even despite the strikes. They are enthusiastic about their specialities. However, the student union renovations make it hard to enjoy the student union as much.

The university offers a great learning experience! Apart from accessible lecturers, there are various places on campus where you can study – change of scenery is great! A balance of study and social is definitely what you get here.

Having worked with the International Office, they really try their best to accommodate both current and upcoming students to the university.

I think the campus was situated in a perfect place because you’re so close to the actual city meaning that you mingle with people from the university and not. I think in general the facilities have improved massively and I was very thankful for the microwaves that were put on campus. The student union in my opinion was rather useless because no one I know actually used it because the city was just there.

Facilities are great academically. Organisation of the course and communication with students can let it down however.

Faculty at this university are terrible and somewhat corrupted. Repeatedly told students “contract was to provide a degree not an education”. Refused to pay out from the £1 million saved during strikes by reimbursing students, instead offered free graduation gowns worth £40.

Good university, great city, great student culture. I have found that most learning based things have been poorly organised, but the uni has good facilities.

I am currently in second year reading Physics with Theoretical Physics at the University of Manchester. I find the course fairly enjoyable, but with little room for choice with regards to optional modules (one choice module per year so far). The support network at the university also seems to be somewhat lacking, especially in terms of mental health (I've been diagnosed with bipolar). On the other hand, the facilities are fantastic! Libraries are abundant with high-quality books, textbooks and journals, as well as computers, printers and virtually any technology that you'd regularly use. The Alan Gilbert learning commons is extremely useful too, as it's open 24 hours a day and provides a nice quiet environment in which to do work. The Physics building is extremely well equipped, and has recently received an expansion in the form of the new Schuster annex, which provides more study spaces. Laboratories have sufficient equipment, although lots of said equipment is 20 - 30 years old (not that this really matters). Lecture theatres are very large, and are a good space to learn in. Lectures are also recorded and released as podcasts which is very useful should you miss a lecture. The university careers service is easily accessible and provides useful advice. Physics students have a compulsory session with the Physics careers advisor at the start of second year, which is very useful in order to learn about the wide variety of potential career routed available to students, as well as the internship and grad scheme support available through the careers service. Overall, I would say that Manchester is a good university, although the experience doesn't feel personal, and can feel like you're lost in the system with the thousands of students enrolling every year.

Campus is nice, students union very involved. Library services not the best, not enough space for everyone- especially near exam time. Time consuming walking around to find study space

Manchester uni has excellent facilities and staff, the campus is big and has everything needed. The student union is good, there are constantly activities on and things to do. The only issue I have is with the communication, there is little information actually given to you directly about all of the services which the uni provides and where to find information about them.

City campus is an easy five minute walk from city centre, beautiful buildings (some more so than others). Most lectures are podcasted. 10/10

Big campus, with amazing staffs. Friendly students and flatmates, who took me around the city in the first month of university. The university of manchester is a part of Russel group. It is only 20 minutes by bus and only 10 minutes walk away to the longest curry mile in Europe. The teachers are amazing, i understand 70-80% of what is going on during lecture with helpful tutors also. If you walk pass the universtiy, it feels like you just enter Hogwarts from Harry Potter. The university even have their own museum, and the best part is the John Ryland library located in Deansgate, it is a go to place for every manchester student, and one of the first places i take my friends to whenever they visity Manchester. The university also has the Alan gilbert learning common, which open 24/7, they also provide private rooms, you will probably want to book the rooms early, especially during exam periods, it is always crowded. I had never believed that i will apply for Manchester, and here i am, and i enjoy every single minutes here.

The campus is massive, well equipped with anything a student would ever require. The staff are all extremely friendly, tutors always supportive and there's always activities going on throughout the year so you never get bored. With the strikes, they have been brilliant in supporting and reassuring us that it would be taken into consideration, going so far as to omitting and revising the exam content to include only what we have covered.

The campus and facilities available to students are very good. There is good support available for students with regards to course work load and workshops available for students. There are many study spaces available as well. There is a plethora of student societies to choose from sports to more creative societies. The campus is lost to the main city and there are many shops available to do your food and clothes shopping. The student union supports its students by organising student events especially in stressful periods such as the run up to exams.

The course I am taking is MPharm. The overall structure of the course was very organised. This is because it not only includes lectures to increase our clinical knowledge but it also provides us with a lot of placement opportunities. Prior to oriel application which is a new system where the employers across tbe country can recruit students based on their ranking, the university also provides us with some tips and exercises to guide us through the new process.
