Manchester is a buzzing student city and draws people from all over the country and the world! Boasting excellent education facilities, the city also offers an amazing social scene, party atmosphere and a welcoming home environment. Manchester has seen millions of students over the years, but here are four famous faces who chose Manchester as their educational home…
1. Professor Brian Cox
The much loved Professor has achieved great success through recent TV documentaries and has become a firm favourite in many homes in Britain. Brian Cox studied physics at the University of Manchester and has, of course, gone on to become a professor at the University himself. This incredible man is truly someone that Manchester can be proud of.
2. Christopher Eccleston
This actor, perhaps best known for his role as the prestigious Doctor Who, studied performance at the University of Salford. As well as portraying the 9th Doctor, Eccleston has appeared in Thor: The Dark World, Safe House and The A Word.
3. Rik Mayall
A British legend, Rik Mayall was a much loved comedian, actor and writer. He studied drama at the University of Manchester in 1975 and went on to star in many much loved shows including Bottom, The Young Ones and Man Down. Mayall sadly passed away in 2014 but is well loved and remembered for bringing such laughter and happiness to so many.
4. Benedict Cumberbatch
That’s right, Sherlock superstar Benedict Cumberbatch didn’t just study in London! He attended the University of Manchester to study drama before his hugely successful acting career took off. Since then Cumberbatch has not only graced TV but starred in many blockbuster hits including The Imitation Game and Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
