Hi guys,

Would just like to know your experience if you are an ethnic at Manchester. I'm enrolling next year hopefully and this is something I feel I need to think about. I'd particularly like tk know your experience as an ethnic living in fallowfield halls, esp if you're a British Asian /Muslim!! Thank you

Half of these courses are made up of Asians (Chinese+Malaysian). You won't stand out. Should be plenty of Indian, Pakistanis also. You are worrying about nothing

The only racism I've faced is from students, even ones with BLM sticky notes pasted on their kitchen windows. My flatmates are amazing, although they do occasionally drop a rather borderline racist comment (not malicious, just ignorant). Most people are really nice, but I've had some people mock my accent and stuff - I'm South Asian, not British Asian so obviously have an accent, might be different for you.

I'm not 'worrying about nothing', you clearly have no idea what I'm asking

I'm South Asian, didn't have any bad experiences on campus at least, even though my course was filled with white people (didn't make any friends at all though, lol). Some school kids laughed at me when I was in the outskirts of Manchester (was wearing ethnic clothes) but that's about it. No one batted an eye while I was on campus, and there were a ton of racial minorities living at my accommodation too. There's a lot of diversity for sure but my experience does not speak for everyone, of course.
