The UK is full of fantastic universities, and for students looking to take the next big step in education it can be hard to choose. Attending open days and speaking to other students is a great way to find out which uni offers the best course for you. You also need to consider, when moving away from home, whether the university town/city offers everything you want and need for this incredible experience. With that in mind, here are five reasons to consider Manchester as a place to study.
1. It’s affordable
Manchester is one of the most affordable cities for students, when you look at living costs such as rent. Compared to other large cities, especially London, Manchester offers you a vibrant, bustling home that won’t break the bank. Saving on living costs leaves you with more money to spend on your university experience and the things you really enjoy.
2. Incredible nightlife
It’s no secret that Manchester has a buzzing night scene, with bars and clubs, pubs and gig venues at almost every turn. The city boasts a truly friendly and welcoming atmosphere, so you’ll feel safe and meet loads of new friends.
3. Plenty of culture
Manchester is a very cultural city, and you’ll experience many ways of life here. Moving to and studying in Manchester will open your eyes to new music, new food and new fashions, leaving you with more life experience and an open mind.
4. Great travel connections
We all get homesick, so luckily Manchester has fantastic travel connections. It’s hugely well connected via rail, bus and coach and even flights, so you’ll be able to go home to visit family at ease.
5. Outstanding universities
There’s more than one university in Manchester, so you can be sure to find a course, location and atmosphere that suits you and your future goals and plans.
