    I want to to do either an English Lit or History degree, my college tutor said Manchester Uni is better because Manchester Met is easier to get into so it's more lenient with grades?
    No mention of architecture, as far as I'm aware…

    Man Met is crap...It lives up to being a Micky Mouse University...but surprisingly has good graduate prospects for many courses.

    I know a guy that went there and is now a area manager for CPW...

    Have you compared the courses to make sure they aren't too different? I can't say for your choices, but I've compared my Philosophy course modules and they're roughly the same, although Manchester do go into more detail about the modules on their website. Now I'm kinda stuck choosing between the two, it's hard because there are pros and cons for both unis. Manchester is regarded as better because of its reputation, but I have family and friends who go to MMU and they really enjoy it. I guess it depends on what you want your uni experience to be like. I'm gonna go off how I feel on the visit days in February and see which campus suits me.

    i do economics at manchester met, and the course is brilliant, i'm supported, not over- nor under-worked, well-prepared for my exams and, i believe, well prepared with a general understanding of economics.
    and i've only been here four months.
    my flatmate does history and she concurs.

    i urge you not to pick your university based on prestige.

    The UoM students were in their final year, the MMU students had been there a month, not a brilliant comparison.

    Manchester Met is no where near as good as University of Manchester- so yes, it is easier to get into Man Met than UoM.

    UoM is more 'prestigious'.

    The truth, without a doubt

    As an MMU student, the answer is Manchester. In a sense, there's no real comparison.

    That said, MMU's English department have the current poet laureate Carol-Ann Duffy and the person who was favourite for the role - Simon Armitage. There's a real depth and passion for the subject and I feel that the course is taught to a high standard. As a specialist research institute in English, it scored a 4 out of 5 with signs indicating a likelihood of a 5 next time.

    I also associate with both MMU and ManUni English students as a journalistic sub-editor for both University's papers, and find that the general standard of written English is better from MMU students. However, the sample group is too small to call this a 'trend'.

    However, a lot of the books I use to research are ManUni publications. John Rylands library has everything you could want, whereas MMU's Kenneth Green library never has what you want in the right place.

    It ultimately depends what you do with your time there, rather than the quality of the institution. I'd rather get a First at MMU that a 2:1 at ManUni. Which is rather fortunate.

    I would say yes. The Univeristy 'ofs' always seem to be better than any other kind of uni in the area.

    Despite that, I don't care. I'm off to MMU in September, I couldn't give a monkeys which is better really, a degree is a degree.........the poly uni's offer students who can't get A grades at least a chance to get into uni. Saying that though, the grades asked for by the met uni's can still sometimes be quite respectable.

    It's obvious that Manchester is better than man met. However, you can't say MMU is entirely crap. You probably see students who got rejected to UoM and went to MMU because they want to stay local.

    Like me...even though I got rejected to UoM, I wanted to go to Keele Uni as an alternative, but I didn't like the countryside and it's isolated. Therefore, i am going to MMU instead because i like living in a City based area, the course seems good and I can adapt in that environment.

    Manchester Uni is a LOT better, obivously im biased, but I did apply for both, had Met as my insurance. The amount of contact time is a lot less, and with University being a lot more research focused I've found the lecturers to be very enthusiastic. If you have the grades for Manchester University then go there for definite!

    what do you think about the management&leisure at man uni and events management and MMU? the thing is, the MMU course has got a placement year, and I believe it would be more useful than the man uni course, how do you think? I am torn between them!
