Im planning on taking a gap year next year so I was wondering of applying to Manchester uni for economics. Ive never seen the campus or the actual uni but have heard good things about it and just wanted any advice from current Manchester uni applicants and applicants that have applied their for their respective courses. Please give me advice and your opinions on the uni, thanks

I'm a current student, also in the School of Social Sciences, and I love it.

However, whilst Manchester is academically strong, what makes a uni enjoyable to attend (either in terms of modules available or in terms of the extra curricular side) is entirely subjective.

Manchester has the open days coming up - 21st and 22nd June and then one in early October. I'd really recommend coming if it's at all possible.

I heard it's very good and the uni itself is respected. It's supposed to have the best careers service in the country and the uni is absolutely massive. I've only visited Manchester once but it seems like a very sociable and lively place to live! Like literally all i saw were students everywhere :eek:

Social life is pretty good - it's a big city which is really quite student-oriented. There are four uni sports centres - Sugden (indoor sports halls + gym), Aquatics (Olympic sized swimming pool + gym), Armitage (outdoor sports pitches + indoor sports halls + gym) and Wythenshawe (football fields). There are also 40-something sports societies http://www.sport.manchester.ac.uk/athletic-union and a lot more non-sports societies http://manchesterstudentsunion.com/g...ciety#academic Most questions about uni accommodation are already answered in this thread, but if there's something else you want to know then feel free to ask http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=2091577

The Guardian league tables are a load of absolute nonsense, more so than usual this year. It's helpful to understand what they do measure, and what they don't. One of the big things that they don't measure is prestige, and there's a really useful thread that will help you understand league tables here on TSR http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=1096372

Yes, Manchester is a prestigious university. It's in the Russell Group (which essentially contains the UK's most prestigious universities) and is generally very well regarded by employers.
