    You'll have a great time cos there's so much to do, both night and day. You'll leave with a degree where you'll easily get areally good well paid job, anything you may be inetersted in will be catered for in or around manchester.

    In short, the place is fantastic and whatever makes you happy, you will find that something in manchester.

    Huge university so you're likely to meet a diverse cross-section of people, well organised student union so you can get involved in lots of stuff according to your interests, well respected academically and good job prospects, the city itself is just ace and not too bad in terms of the cost of living… erm, lots more.

    Honestly, I wouldn't change my choice, and all of my friends feel the same way. That's a fairly good peer review.

    Well yes. First and foremost it's a university with high standards.

    There are alot of foreign students on my course who don't do the whole nightlife scene and they all seem to be having a good time. There are lots of union events, there are enough cinemas, theres a bowling alley and laser quest in didsbury, as well as plenty of other things to do at night.

    hi, me again,but what if I am not that much into night scene (I had my days), but am a mum with kiddies and married:p: , so we only do the odd night now and rather in quiet romantic places hehe , I also love the countryside and love hiking and maybe just going for a walk, is there enough for the nature lover and outdoors-person in that area, I know North Wales is not too far...... thats the only thing that worries me, not really a city babe!

    I'm not really into the night life.

    There is however a lot of TA unit in and around Manchester if that is your sort of thing.

    Wales is a 45min car journey away, far better than the lake district.

    Yeah I've seen the TA around Manchester but I thought that was just for the army..? So what do students have to do with it? I'm not really your army kind of girl lol.

    And it's nice to know the countryside's not too far away! The city itself is great but a bit of greenery's good too

    TA is a good source of income while at university! You go when you want, as much as you want, as little as you want. It's also a good laugh.

    I personally love Saddleworth. Its only a very short (20 mins or so) train ride away and there are some great little villages and lots of hills, forests and moors for hiking if thats your thing. Personally, I love getting my mountain bike out of the city to where its meant to be.
