Student life in Manchester

A centre for sport

Manchester is famous for its football. It is home to Manchester United and Manchester City, two of the biggest football clubs in the world, as well as the National Football Museum. You can experience the thrill of seeing a local football match, or explore the many other sports Manchester has to offer.

Shopping in Manchester

Sensational shopping

Manchester is an incredible destination for shoppers, and the city can match London for great places to shop. The Trafford Centre is one of the most famous shopping centres in the country, and Manchester is home to not one, but two Selfridges department stores.

History and culture

Manchester is a modern, vibrant city, but it also has a long history and many cultural places of interest. It was at the very heart of Britain’s Industrial Revolution, and there are many impressive historic buildings to see. There are also plenty of museums, galleries and arts venues, such as the popular Lowry.

Why study in Manchester

Musical Manchester

Music plays a big role in student life in Manchester, with an iconic club music scene to experience. The summer brings the outdoor Parklife Festival, which attracts a diverse array of both famous and emerging music artists. The city is also home to numerous concert venues that host world-famous music artists from every genre.

I like spending time in the city centre and at the Trafford Centre; I go there for shopping and to hang out with friends. I also like Rusholme, nearby, where you can get good Asian food!
