I am currently a student at Manchester Metropolitan University. Manchester is a great location to study, you can walk from on each side of the city to the other in a few minutes. There are bus routes for as little as £1.50, that take only 10 minutes to get from fallowfields to university. The location is so diverse, it’s refreshing. There’s the curry mike that’s filled with Asian cuisine and culture and the China town, decorated beautifully in traditional Chinese banners. It’s a city which is awake at all ones of the night, you can order takeAways at 3am, get buses at 4am or stay in clubs till whatever time you please. The university is extremely easy to find, located in a good area. Manchester has been closing down a lot of popular clubs though such as sankeys and antwerp mansion, clubs that attract a lot of people from other city’s.

There’s always something to do in Manchester and a lot of things are student orientated, especially on Oxford St where MMU and The university of Manchester are both situated. There’s an amazing bike lane system up Oxford St and there are a lot of free shuttle buses too which take you all around the city. In my opinion some of the best places for night life are Soup Kitchen - during the day they are a restaurant and bar with amazing healthy foods with a lot of vegan options and in the night time they open up the basement where they have underground events and gigs. Remake Remodel is a night that’s held there and sometimes in the Ruby Lounge which is always a hit - it’s a music artist specific night for example they did a Joy Division night, a Tame Impala night, an ABBA night etc.

Manchester is the place to be! All the food, all the night life, all the students! Only down fall is how dirty the city is, could be worse, but could be better!

So many amazing restaurants all around Manchester, both cheap and expensive so there's always somewhere new to try. Shopping facilities are great, the city centre and Trafford centre have everything you need plus other places like chester and liverpool are easily accessible from Manchester. That's another positive Manchester has great transport links to everything, you often get cheap flights from the airport which is great for short breaks. Even though the city is big is never feels too big which is nice. It's not that cheap any more in terms of nights out and events but it is still a great place for unique nights out like pingpong bars and gaming bats, and the gay village is great.

It’s a diverse city with lots of things to see and do. It’s got a great variety of areas, e.g the northern quarter which I would recommend. It has some cheap student bars which are good. The Trafford centre is amazing however it is a bit out of the way and you can’t quickly get there from the city centre. Salford quays and castle field and deansgate are also nice areas. There is quite a lot of crime in Manchester compared to other major cities but it doesn’t really feel less safe. Piccadilly gardens is a nice area and has lots of surrounding shops and restaurants. There is a lot of nightlife in Manchester with a variety of clubs to suit everyone

Nights out are amazing, only see certain awesome and cool experiences at Manchester, such a unique city. The clubs and food are all really good. Food in Manchester is amazing, countless number of places to eat at! A lot of things to do in Manchester, such as the trampoline parks, shopping centres, events at the area etc.

It's an amazing city. Although where I live could do with a better facility: No cleaners, broken washers, that staff should be more responsive to. Although Manchester is a very welcoming and warmfull city. Good night life and good for shopping.

I'm a Manchester Met student, and I have to say I really love the city of Manchester. Although I live a little bit outside of the centre, in Fallowfield, transport is really good and cheap for getting in and out of town. Nowhere else compares to Manchester in terms of nights out. Some of the best gigs I've ever been to have been in Antwerp Mansion. Food is pretty reasonably priced in the city too, and Lidl is in an ideal location for picking up cheap grub!

The University of Manchester campus location is great if you are at the main campus. If not, you are at the Piccadilly Sackville Street campus, this is where I was based. Both have positives and negatives but Sackville Street was close to Manchester Market Street and the Arndale Centre (5 minutes walk!) and next to Piccadilly station so great for that. The main campus is great for being close to most student houses and the atmosphere is great because it is he real "student hub"

Great city with loads to do and plenty of different people around to meet. Lots of places offer student deals which is means most activities and nights out will be cheap.

So much to do in Manchester, 5 seconds from the uni is the famous curry mile, filled with delicious cuisine from Asia and the middle East. Further into town there are endless places to eat, catering to all tastes. Uni is situated inbetween town and other residential areas so it doesn't take too long to move about and feel like you're not surrounded by students. Great nightlife. Cheap gigs all the time with great performers coming to play.

Really fun city, always something to do at night or during the day. Often say it's a smaller version of London but way cheaper. The only downside is certain areas, especially Fallowfield which is a key student location can be a bit dangerous at night.

There is so much going on and it is not too expensive to go out or go for a meal with a lot of choice, especially if you like curry!

Manchester is a vibrant city with so much going on! It has places like the curry mile which as the name suggests is amazing for curry and falafel places! The northern quarter has many cafes and caters for vegans (such as the amazing V revs), and then the corn exchange has lots of chain restaurants. Then the nightlife has soo much choice, from bars in fallowfield to the typical clubs like Factory and Fifth, alternative clubs such as 42s or satans hollow and then deansgate locks for a more upmarket night out. There is a massive selection of shops too, and the people in Manchester are so friendly.

Great city! A lot of different choices of food and drinks with a wide price range. Good variety of different cuisines. Transport can be more convenient though as the bus services are not frequent in some area.

Manchester is a vibrant city. It has all you need, from entertainments to getaway. It has a good mix of a variety of people from different countries and having different cultures.

Bars in the northern quarter are lovely if you actually enjoy what goes into your drink. If you don't care then fallowfield bars are cheap. Again restaurants in the city centre are again great and cheaper than London. A fairly dirty city with a massive homeless problem which can make wondering the streets concerning at night. Crime in the fallowfield area is way to high and needs sorting out.

It’s amazing, I don’t regret choosing Manchester, the location is prefect for a uni experience away from home. The train line is convenient if you want a weekend home only an hour and 40 minute journey. Night life is brilliant with LGBT night life, Canal Street is cheap and cheerful. In general, night life is cheap, don’t need a lot of money to go out. Shopping, go links to Trafford Centre and Arndale shopping mall with tram and bus regular. I do recommend Manchester.
