    Hi everyone,

    I'm a current final year law student at Manchester Met. Over the past few years I have first hand witnessed a massive improvement at the university; we are rising in league tables year on years and our facilities at the All Saints campus really are exceptional.

    However, I have became increasingly ceptical of the use of 'Metropolitan' in our name. Reports have found the word has been linked to a 'lower quality product'. (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-leeds-23488414).

    I feel like MMU has definitely improved enough to ditch this word so commonly associated with lower ranking universities. I definitely think the university has 'grown up' and established itself as an excellent institution and this should be reflected in the university name as for example, Leeds Beckett have achieved.

    Any thoughts?
