Manchester: home of the first computer, Oasis and the Dr. Who revival. Why choose here?
#1 The sheer number of places to study
It’s one of the UKs top cities for students, mostly due to the choice of universities. There are many prestigious educational institutions in and around Manchester that attract students from all around the world, like the University of Manchester, the Manchester Metropolitan University and Salford University. Not to mention the number of specialist colleges and institutes like BIMM and Futureworks. Whatever your chosen profession, you’ll be able to find a course for you in Manchester.
#2 There’s always somewhere perfect for you
Due to the presence of so many colleges and universities, student housing in Manchester is available easily. There are many Manchester student flats, apartments and houses that are available at affordable prices, and most no more than a 10 minute walk away from your preferred place of education! No matter what your budget, you can easily find a place to live suited to you.
#3 You’ll never get bored
Due to the presence of a large student community in Manchester (over 80,000 students in fact!), the city offers plenty of things to do, see and eat. Every now and again you’ll need a break from all that hard work and studying, and so from China town, to Manchester Arndale, to the local football stadiums, to the wide transport links, to the city centre cinemas, to the indoor ski arena to Almost Famous Burger, there is something for each and every student to enjoy in Manchester.
#4 The employment opportunities
Manchester University is among the top five targets for leading graduate employers, and although you might not be so affluent during your studies, research has shown that students who graduated with a degree in Manchester now have a net worth of at least £19m!
#5 You’re never too far from the countryside… or the beach!
Manchester is the second largest urban city in the UK, but don’t fear, you’re never more than an hour away from some beautiful scenery! You can find seaside towns and beaches in Blackpool, or even head to Huddersfield or Saddleworth to spend some time in the quaint little cafes after taking a walk around the countryside. In Manchester, you have the best of both worlds!
