Manchester metropolitan university is a really great institution. It is diverse in culture and creates room for everyone to express themselves irrespective of who you are. I recommend MMU anytime anywhere anyday.

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.
MMU is an excellent uni situated in the heart of Manchester
Due to covid I have no real idea about our campus
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.
Good staff, nice facilities overall would recommend
Kind teachers provide you with plenty of help Student union and student hub both very helpful
We deserve a partial refund of tuition fees
Haven’t managed to gain the full experience due to online teaching but so far everything is good
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!
I loved my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at Manchester Metropolitan University! The tutors are so passionate about their subjects and the pastoral support is second to none.
River street tower offers students a comfortable stay in a shared accommodation facility. With 24 hour security.It is perfect for residents.
great. super great. always loved MMU
My experience in the university has been amazing! Everyone is so friendly, social life is great because the university is based in city centre but most importantly, you get so much support from the staff and tutors within your university years and after you graduate.
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.
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.
My 3 years at mmu were the best 3 years of my life! I had the best time, the student life was so much fun, loads of society’s and sports activities to do. The business school facilities were amazing, modern and the access to resources was extensive. Lots of great lecturers and support available. I’d do it all again if I could!
I'm a student nurse and was extremely excited to attend MMU as it seemed like a great university. Unfortunately I've had nothing but problems with the university, from a lack of communication to being told different information by different tutors etc. This has especially been the case during the coronavirus pandemic, I understand it was unexpected but there has been barely any communication to students in regards to placements, accommodation, exams/essays etc. I would've also hoped for some communication between personal tutors checking up on students but I feel like I've been left to struggle on my own. I really wanted to love this university, I understand that with NMC guidance changing and the coronavirus pandemic there have been a lot of changes, but I had hoped for a lot more support and communication. Perhaps my expectations were set too high, sadly, I wish I had attended a different university. One positive is that the campus is lovely and very sustainable.
Manchester Metropolitan is a brilliant, laid back type of university. All the lecturers are so friendly and helpful.
Love everything about the institution . I am happy with my decision
MMU has been fantastic for me over the years. I studied at this Instituition when it was called Manchester Polytechnic. I struggled with my Bachelors Degree course in the 80s I thought that extra academic and care needs support was needed for me. However, I still passed my Bachelors Degree in Chemistry and the Poly as an excellent University for me to study in and the teaching and course quality were very good. When Poly became Manchester Metropolitan University, the standard of education and course quality were excellent and I studied on a 2 year, part time PGCE in Tertiary Education. I passed this in 2005 and was then able to work in colleges and as a supply teacher in schools. From 2014 to 2020, I studied on part time Masters Degree in Education and I have achieved a merit grade, thanks to the tremendous, academic and care needs support of the lecturers and my supervisor was A* for my dissertation. I am really pleased with the MMU and I highly recommend this University to stud
The best place to study. Teaching stuff are excellent, always ready to help Great environment to socially connect and learn State of the art facilities to enhance teaching and learning. I rate MMU the BEST
Has lots of society’s to join, fast WiFi, modern buildings and lots of spaces to work or relax
I studied fashion art direction MA at MMU and I very rarely take the time to write reviews however, I felt this one was to be honest, brutally important. The course felt like a wild rollercoaster the whole time and I can honestly say that I never felt settled at MMU, I can’t speak for the undergrad courses because I got mixed reviews from other students however I know the people on my course felt very similar to me. Basically I am writing to tell people contemplating this course to look into it thoroughly and make sure it’s right for you and make sure they have improved their course structure, make sure you get some actual time with your tutors because I never did, I never felt like I really had one... I understand MA’s are supposed to be independent however this one in particular was like teaching and exploring things myself, most of which I did at home without any input from anybody, I never met any industry professionals or people of interest in my year at MMU.
Student hub mental health counselling is awful the uni need to sort the welfare of students out and place it as a priority otherwise they will leave which many do after 1 term or 1 year
Great student life on top of a world class business school enabling students to achieve high scoring degrees along with personal and professional development
Great, good, grand, fab, cool, fun, exciting, interesting.
It’s a great environment to work in and there’s always someone to help if you need it.
Loved being here and soo much better than Uni of
Amazing university. Everyone is so helping and considerate. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Facilities are very well laid out to help each individual.
Had a good time at MMU and came out with a degree that actually helped me to get a job
Great university that has a free active campus if you can’t afford to be In societies.
I’ve heard good things from people doing other subjects but do not take international relations. Lectures are sarcastic and think the world of themselves. Course is BORING!
The teaching is fantastic, tutors are kind and very knowledgeable, and the level of support I have been given for my mental health is outstanding. I study English and Film and the course is fascinating and enjoyable. I love everything about MMU and would highly recommend it to anyone!
Man met is an excellent uni with lots of support and facilities for all, both socially and educationally.
I currently study Business Management at MMU (2nd year) and I have noticed that the majority of modules that we are studying are more Marketing oriented. Although this is not bad as we can develop our creativity, ot would be better if some accounting or finance modules existed as well.
My experience has been overall very good. I feel sometimes the university isn’t as organised as they should be however I have been overall very successful academically so far and socially it’s been the best few months of my entire life.
Great facilities for independent studies. Lecturers go above and beyond to help students.
An obvious amount of money invested into facilities and updating the university, despite this I feel as tho the teaching by lecturers could be improved significantly, having only experienced a couple of tutors, throughout my 3 year course, which were willing to help me considerably. Unfortunately the rest of my tutors had little of no interest in me and my grades, having taking obvious favourites within the students in my course, investing most of there time in these people. I really do believe that my grade did suffer because of this, and without my own ambitions and motivation I would have not passed the coursework focused course.
Amazing university, go there please.
Easily the best university in Manchester with great psychology facilities. Tutors are knowledgeable, passionate and keen to help. Constantly spending money to improve the uni and themselves. The help they provide new students is great.
Since I joined late in the year I have found it welcomed me with open arms. Transferring from uom I have found the facilities so much more expensive and tutors more engaging
Manchester Metropolitan University is fantastic with great facilities offering many opportunities to students. Moreover, the courses are very well organised and the personal tutors very helpful as well.
MMU is a very good uni and care a lot about their student and their well-being
Proper bad boi business, everybody getting leng and that. if you wanna learn not just about maths n s*** but life and garry's too then this is the gaff, honestly is like that scene on Paul where he touches your head and fills ya up with knowledge. this is what every lecture is like.
A truly amazing University with incredible infrastructure located in one of the best cities of the United Kingdom. The lecturers are very helpful and approachable. However, the Student Union needs to be improved and also the prices of the Union's products should be better for students.
A stunning university campus right in the heart of the city, MMU is a great university for an overall experience and a fantastic education.
So much fun and welcoming atmosphere, it’s actually harder to not make any friends. You fall into so many friendships
Felt kinda tricked when I started here - all the videos/promos made the facilities and university look great. But in reality, they only showed the best of the facilities. The library is the most depressing place on earth. Smelly, dark and awful upkeep of toilets etc. It's so uninspiring. The union is disappointing too - not enough to really engage students. It's an ok university, but the facilities, equipments desperately need an update... also the accommodation is SO expensive even for the worst ones, they put the prices up every year - 6k a year minimum. Only come to MMU if you have a high loan. Upside is that they really push placements on most courses and that really helps your job prospects after graduating.
The university itself has a lot to work on, especially some of the courses in the School of Art.
Exceptional, I recently completed my postgraduate qualification at MMU and I feel more employable than ever before.
MMU is an incredible uni with so many opportunities to grasp during your time there. Only thing for me is there needs to be a drama or musical theatre society that anyone can partake in- even those who love the art but aren’t doing it as a degree can join
Wasn't expecting much from my backup uni but was pleasantly surprised. Great uni with great lecturers.
MMU has been a great university experience with supportive staff and diverse facilities. This University reflects the city of Manchester and provides a good library service.
I transferred university from Essex to Manchester metropolitan and it’s the best decision I’ve ever made. Everyone helped me get on track right away and I fitted in so well with my course mates!
I studied English literature here. So the facilities i.e. the Library, the lecture halls and so on were of phenomenal use here. The lecturers were full off support and were always on hand if you needed help academically and personally. The Geoffrey Manton building is incredible with a book swap and sofas down stairs near the lecture halls to provide and incredibly chilled space to go through ones notes from the lectures. The student life is incredible being in the middle of Manchester town centre, it is an incredible chance to soak up the culture off the city, and my peers were more than accommodating, supportive and inclusive, its hard to feel left out at this university. I did not live in the dorms, I can't speak for them facilities but my friends who stayed on the student accomadtion have had nothing but positive things to say about the accommodation.
Lovely university with lots to offer! Everyone is more than willing to help and there’s so much you can immerse yourself into! However, the union needs to improve
as per my personal experience in this university it’s provides the best facilities and the professors are damn good and friendly
So much fun, gained so much knowledge and experience. Had the best 3 years, modern facilities, so much to do.
Its a good uni very close to manchester city centre with great facilities but students union is abit hidden
MMU Business school is fantastic but i never really felt engaged in the things I learnt about on my course as many of the lectures are purely a lecturer stood talking rather than practical or experience based. Friends at other universities had the opportunity to attend more talks from industry professionals. That said, I achieved highly and had all the support I needed from certain lecturers.
Really good new buildings new library can borrow Mac books every day too
I had an amazing four years of my life. I got help every step of the way from lectures, career services, the library (my oh my! My favourite place ❤️), the union and financial advisor (they even contacted student finance on my behalf as they were messing me up) thank you MMU.
It’s a good uni in a lively area but it’s obviously not as fancy as Uni of Manchester for a example. My main issue is that they’re not great at sorting issues and not great at communicating. Still though, I’m glad I chose this university as it’s not just about the uni itself but the place you live have such a big impact on your uni life and I enjoy being where I am.
I loved it there. Had so much fun in learning and lectures were always helpful. If I had any problems the student hub was always welcoming and happy to help.
Manchester Metropolitan university really do go out of their way to help people do better no matter what background. The financial support and student support systems they have in place our fantastic. They provide us with a safe and positive working environment and also offer a wide range of safe and secure student accommodations. I believe it is important to highlight the support they offer to people who don’t come from a fully supported background because without Manchester Metropolitan university I would have lost my confidence in going to university and continuing my education. Many thanks Manchester Metropolitan university :)
Campus is lovely and modern and is easy to settle into. Everyone is friendly! Internet is a big let down as is extremely slow particularly in the Brooks building. Student Union is very helpful
Lecturers (psychology) show very little support towards students and take days to reply to your emails. A lot will resort to telling you ‘look on moodle’ when you want to ask questions. Campus is lovely and modern however and is easy to settle into. Everyone is friendly!
It's a great uni and they are very organised and lectures are very supportive
Excellent university with great facilities and staff that are willing to go the extra mile, privileged to study here
Brilliant all round university
best uni, most sustainable, cares about students
A really friendly environment to study in with great opportunities. The lecturers are really helpful and give you the advice you need with all assignments.
Good variety of facilities in art school
A great place all round, it has everything and more
Friendly, welcoming experience and with so much to offer
Masters students were lied to before applying for the course in order to increase applicants. The course was poorly run and massively oversubscribed.
Hardly saw the tutors. They hardly replied to emails. In second year has hardly any teaching and ws pretty much left to our own devices but expected to create work to fit a brief but didn't explain the work required properly. Really poor teaching from the textiles department
MMU is alright, I don't have the time to get involved with societies sadly!
I have my amazing staff that have been so helpful with the transition from A-levels to university degree I found my course content really interesting and manageable and the building is absolutely superb
Overalk very good but departments vary in quality.
Library is 24/7 and can fine all books and other necessary resources. All the courses are up to date to professional specs.
Very good food and a nice environment at the uni.
Only 1 out of 4 of my computing teachers actually speak English well at all.
University is great when it comes to facilities and clubs etc but the teaching is poor. I was there for a year and ended dropping out with no support as I didn’t feel my lectures cared and were so half hearted. Fashion department is over rated , it’s awful. Moved to Salford and the difference is unbelievable
Two words: wonderful and unforgettable.
Amazing welcoming experience with all modern facilities and great teaching standards
I am enjoying my first year at MMU for sure. Great course (English and Creative Writing) and facilities (24 hour library as well as a poetry library to come in the following year!) The only thing my uni experience falls down on is lacking social side of things which includes societies/inactive societies.
I’m a first year and the university has been so welcoming and made me feel a proper grown up just living in a different city. The library is 24/7 and although I hope I never have to be there at 3am, it is nice knowing I can stay as late/be as early as I want. The apps that the science students use are also available on the library computers which is really useful if I haven’t finished my work. The library is massive and has loads of different sections (quiet/silent/group) which is useful. The lecturers are all really friendly and very knowledgeable meaning we can throw all kinds of questions at them. The accommodation is amazing and makes me feel at home. Most of the buildings also have a nice modern feel to them so everything is up to date. It’s a great uni :)
Great uni with lots of support.
Great for developing Life skills but terrible Academic teaching
I have received no support whatsoever at MMU, to the point I feel as though I am going to fail my degree.
I love my uni - the uni alone is great although the personal life experiences you go through at times are probably anything but...
My time at Man Met has been fantastic. There is always a time of support and opportunities available. My confidence and ambition has continued to grow throughout my time at University. I now run our Law society which is doing extremely well and has in turn provided more and more job prospects.
Lots of support, lots of engagement from the university itself and a welcoming atmosphere all around
Great facilities and great teaching. I always felt safe at MMU and I always had the full support of lecturers and careers hub staff whenever I needed them.
Excellent uni, everyone happy to help whatever it is. great resources and facilities.
