    Im going to an open day tomorrow at UMIST as i have been offered a place on the Management and Information Technology course. Does anyone have any tips for what i should look at or avoid, i'm hoping to have a good look around before the official talks actually start.

    Also is anyone else going tomorrow?

    any advice or help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.

    After the open day take a 42/142/43/47/43/143/44/45A/157 and loads more into Manchester city centre and have a look round.

    Also remember UMIST won't exist from September as it will be known as the all new "University of Manchester".

    I'll be 5 mins away from UMIST, if you get lost, you may just bump into me But yeah, as amazingtrade said, go up Oxford Road on one of those buses, have a look at the different student unions, then go into Manchester, since this is where you'll be spending most of your time.

    Amazingtrade goes to Salford Uni, and I goto Xaverian Sixth Form college, which is on the same road as UMIST, Manchester, Man Met, MBS, and the Royal Northern.

    They are both in an area of the city 100% dominated by the universities and their students. (See above, there are 4 unis on that road, the business school, and the 6th form college). If you're looking for student life, I can't imagine a more dense student life setup anywhere.

    Manchester is where most the facilities are. UMIST is just a 5 minutes must ride away. You will have access to the swimming pool they used in the common wealth games, all the libraries, museums etc.

    Manchester is second to only London in terms of facilities. We have everything including Selfridges and Harvey Nichols

    There are loads of societies too, trust me if you're a student in Manchester you cannot get bored. I live at home and don't really get bored.

    There seems to be quite a separation between Man Met/Manchester, but not Manchester and UMIST? Also, UMIST is actually just a dependency of Manchester, along with Leeds and Liverpool (mooha).

    Yep apparantly there are more students per 1sq mile in Manchester than anywhere else in Europe. No wonder considering we have at least 60,000 HE students.

    Manchester has 120 000 registered, 30 000 full time, UMIST about half that I guess, Man Met the same, Salford is bloody massive, question is, do we count Bolton Institute? :P
