I'm a current first year at MMU and I'm really concerned about the impact the (seemingly) poor reputation of the university will have on my career opportunities. I applied to MMU knowing it wasn't at the top of any league tables or anything like that but, I didn't think the university had such a bad reputation.... Until I moved to Manchester.
I am friends with quite a few people from UoM and when I tell people I am studying at MMU it is usually met with laughter. for example, once a guy from UoM literally said 'I'll forgive you for going to MMU' Whats this all about?!
Is MMU really viewed in such a bad light and if so, why?
