It's a great city, with so much to do all the time, there's so much diversity in what to do, if you want a chilled day out or a nice night where you can get dressed up then Manchester is perfect

I think that Manchester is a place that provides everything each individual may need from clothing to your favourite restaurant. It has a wide range of food places, shops and attractions. Manchester is a great place to celebrate Christmas with the resources and fun provided during the season.

Easy access to shops in the town centre, access in and out the town via bus, train or tram. Great restaurants and bar, some quite expensive but good value for money. Plenty of activities, such as the science museum or junk yard golf. Get very busy during rush hour and busy work times.

Manchester is a really really impressive city; it's absolutely brimming with independent cafes, interesting architecture, amazing food and of course the famous Uni. The size of manchester is ridiculous so there is always new places to explore especially in the Northern Quarter which has unlimited quirky clothes shops, street food stalls and beautiful buildings. In terms of nights out the city offers loads of different clubs and bars; there's a lot of student nights out (such as 42s, Tektu at Joshua Brooks, and always Spoons or Squirrels) which I would 100% recommend over the standard weekend club. The city also hosts Warehouse Project which i would 100% recommend as well Parklife festival which is so convenient and an amazing festival. Fallowfield is one of the most sociable places i've ever been to and there's always something going on and everything you need is round the corner. The only issue with fallow is that it's quite far out from the city centre and the uni which means you have to rely on the bus system (which is usually okay except the 50 service!) Money wise it's not too expensive but it's definitrly not cheap, student deals are usually the best bet but avoid places like Spinningfields if you want to save money. other than that Manchester is such a beautiful city and so so homely.

There are a wide variety of shops which I really like and a wide variety of restaurants. The people are really friendly and approachable. You can always find something to do here whether it's going on a night out with your friends or going to inflatanation. The night life is good with a wide variety of clubs which offer a variety of different music genres. I am happy I moved here.

Lots to do however it can be busy and lots of traffic meaning that sometimes buses are late. The trafford center it a good place to shop as it has many stores and there are lots of places to go out for a meal around rawtenstall

The city of Manchester has more to offer than meets the eye with the most welcoming people and the warmest of atmospheres within the north west! The beautiful of this city is the simple variety that there is to offer if you want a bar or pub in the Northern Quarter to a swanky night out in spinning fields it's got you covered! The day life is just as viberant with shopping and food fanatics covered with the Arndale centre or GRUBs food market! It really is simple get you ticket to Piccadilly booked and enjoy a shining gem of the north west.

Friendly people, plenty of shops, restaurants, bars, clubs etc. Great atmosphere. Easy to get around, buses, trains, cabs, teams readily available. Value for money. Armadale centre and Trafford centre are good places to shop.

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!!

Never a boring day. Always soemthing new and exciting to explore and try out. Whether it's food or adventure on a night out, Manchester is a fun place to be. If shopping is your thing, your never stuck for options!

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.

The closest city to London without being there! Unlike other cities Manchester has a really diverse music scene and lots of clubs and events each week so there is always something new to experience. The city is big enough where there is lots to do but not so much that its overwhelming. Would recommend.

Great city, tonnes of stuff to do, plenty of shops and eateries and great clubs at night. Easy access from student areas due to frequent buses etc.

It’s the busiest student city in the uk with night buses, clubs, parks and student activities on every corner. Probably is one of the best places to experience the student lifestyle.

There is sooooo much to do in Manchester, you will never get bored! From restaurants everywhere to fun quirky places to entertain yourself. Shopping is easy with the arndale centre and one of the biggest Primark’s you have ever seen. Some things in Manchester an be a little pricy however if you learn to shop in the right places then it’s cheap as chips!

MMU is just outside of the city centre which means that the walk to and from nights out is short. There are loads of local transport links such as buses, trains and the metrolink.

I really enjoy being based in Manchester for uni because there's so much around here to do - shopping, nights out, theatre, museums etc. It can be expensive because it's a major city but that's to be expected. There's always something going on around here!

Manchester is incredible. Really great shops, especially in the northern quarter. Nights out are excellent, pretty cheap. I think Manchester has great art galleries which I have really enjoyed going to. The food is great, loads of lovely restaurants however i would love to see more markets. I think Manchester is do friendly and its expanding and developing all the time.

Everything you need surrounding the uni. The famous curry mile on one side with every takeout youd need after a night out, and town on the other with every place to shop and chill, or to eat out more fancy. Between the two are a bunch of different clubs and supermarkets and cinemas etc. Has everything you need and more, and not too expensive either!

Swansea university is in a great location, especially the bay campus which literally next to the beach. The town isn't too small but you can get anything you're looking for. The weather isn't great but when it is it's amazing. Friendly people all around. There's a five guys and band's too.
