The facilities are great, with good internet and home environment. The staff are very friendly and can find them to repair quickly when there is a problem with the room.There was a hole in the wall of our kitchen one day. After the problem was reported, the maintenance staff repaired it the next day, and the problem was quickly resolved. Super efficiency and enthusiastic service, especially at this bargain price, it is hard not to give a five-star.

For Fashion Art Direction students/ fashion students are you given photoshop to download on your own laptops? Also how often can you access the facilities?

Hi,

This year students were given photoshop to dowload on their own comptuers due to Covid-19 and not being able to be on campus. However, we can not guarentee that this will be the case moving forward.

I would advise attending on of our opendays and have a chat with one of our course tutors, and explore the facilities. You can register here.

Sorry for the delay in responding. We would not be able to comment on what the best choice for you would be. We would advise reading our course modules, attend an open day - speak to the staff and current students to get a feel of the course and compare it to other universities. We want you to be happy and make the best choice for you.

Sorry for the delay in responding. All our halls are located close to the campus. Accomodations are only as sociable as the students occupying them. Some accomodations such as Oxford Court are aparements shared between 2-4 whereas Birley have flats and townhouses shared between 10-12. More information on the type of accomodations we have can be found here.

Awful university - do not come here! I wish I went to any other university - MMU support is little to none and when you ask tutors for additional support or have something to say about their teaching, they get hostile and don't want to waste their "time" to support their students even though we're paying £9k. Go somewhere else - you're better off!

Manchester Metropolitan University provides students with an excellent learning environment. The modern facilities help students develop their skills and capabilities. Additionally, lecturers who are experts in their field create a highly interactive learning environment, a fact which plays an important role in the quality of the courses. The University is fairly among the best universities in the UK.

Manchester Metropolitan University is a fantastic University with amazing academic staff. I am also glad to see that the Uni invests money in order to expand and further improve its facilities and services. I hope it continues to do that. I am certain that the University will have a leading role in the future not only in the UK, but globally as well.

I think MMU is a good uni and I’m glad I accepted my offer here. The staff are amazing and always there for advice and quick replies to any enquiries. I’ve had a few issues with the teaching in COVID times in that I’ve not been on campus at all, but other than that they’ve been great and the union are also so helpful.

Unfortunately, Covid-19 has affected us all and Univerisites moved to online learning with no warning. Unfortuantely, fees are set by the Government not the instiution themselves. Is there something in particular about your experience that you think warrants this? If you look at our online courses that we offer they have the same fees.

After completing my UG degree, I'm so glad I chose MMU. The campus is great, modern facilities and unique buildings, loads of study spaces and a really chilled atmosphere. The student union is amazing, so many activities, events, and always something going on there & lots of support services. Well-being and financial services are good. Staff are really helpful, supportive and offer lots of guidance and it actually feels as though the university care about their students. Perfect location right next to the city centre and great sports clubs and societies. Volunteering service and jobs4students scheme are amazing, really helpful and great for building CV's. Absolutely loved my student life here and found I got the support i needed!

Zero support for postgraduates yet undergrads get a safety net procedure to protect their grades. Zero support during a worldwide pandemic and marking was unnecessarily harsh and not constructive. Some modules were a total mess with a lack of planning or care. Lecturers ask latecomers to stand outside the lecture theatre but then don't invite them in as they forget to check causing those who commute to waste hours of valuable lecture time. Students who are late are also shamed by some lecturers and embarrassed.

I'm sorry to hear that you have had a less than favourable experience. All our courses have access to the student hub, academic services, personal tutors and careers. It has been challenging with Covid-19 but we have put in new safety measures to ensure we are available to students. If you send me an email with speciifcs of your above statements I will certainly get some action taken.

All our postgraduate courses require a considerable amount of independent study as that is what employers look for. Our lateness policy of asking students to wait outside was a result of student feedback saying that students who arrived late disrupted the class.

Please email courses@mmu.ac.uk to Antonia. I would like to discuss this further with you.

MMU is not a supportive or communicative university. Do not do your Post grad here. There is very little support, the staff are not professional and the PGCE course is a nightmare. Do yourself a favour and go somewhere else! I wish I had.

Fantastic university with lecturers who go above and beyond for their students. Union is seamlessly integrated in University life and make a concerted effort to ensure everyone is involved in social events and aware of what's happening in and around campus. The careers service could do with an update and ensure they provide more adequate help with students CV's etc. and provide more drop in sessions. They also need to be more widely advertised as I didn't know it was available till third year which I felt was too late to do anything by.

currently enrolled in the Global MBA online course. Worse course and university ever. Tutor does not reply to emails, student advisor does not reply to email. If anyone is considering the global mba couse, take only if you enjoy struggling as no one will answer to your questions. The only email you will receive is the automated email asking you to pay school fees.

Staff and students have been friendly and until covid happened I very much enjoyed the teaching on my course. Communication between the department and students has always been shockingly bad and even worse since. The teaching has all but stopped too. I'm very disappointed with how we have been all but abandoned during this pandemic.
