Manchester is a legendary party city, with loads of things to do every night and lots of things catered to students. The facilities at the Uni are amazing, they’re constantly doing it up and there’s loads of space and computers in the Library now, makes studying so much more relaxing. The staff are all really helpful, and my tutors were incredible – really interesting intellectuals, down to earth and with plenty of great advice and feedback to offer me.
This is a great uni in a great area. The staff and students are friendly and welcoming. This uni is especially good for those wanting to study media/film as it is so close to the BBC and ITV studios which is really cool!

I think this is one of the best unis in Britain, not only as a Russell Group but also outside the lecture halls. I doubt there's another uni that can provide the complete combination of brilliant courses as well as the facilities available here. everything seems to be just right and you can make Sheffield anything you want it to be. I couldn't have picked a more perfect uni for myself.
