Studying at Manchester Metropolitan University has been quite the journey. From the first time I walked through the All Saints Campus, I was struck by the blend of historic architecture and modern facilities. The bustling energy of the Student Union, with its diverse range of clubs and societies, has been invigorating. I've had the privilege of attending lectures from passionate professionals who not only have extensive knowledge in their fields but also a genuine interest in our growth as students. The mix of theoretical and practical sessions has deepened my understanding and appreciation of my chosen field. Outside of academics, I've cherished the moments spent exploring Manchester. there's always something happening in this vibrant city. The diverse student community here has also enriched my experience. Engaging in conversations with peers from all over the world has broadened my perspectives and given me lifelong friendships.

I studied LLB Law at MMU and it was by far the best experience of my life. I applied for 3 universities in London because I thought that’s where I wanted to go, but I went to look at MMU first and it set the bar sky high. I knew I was going there as soon as I’d seen it, and that the other places didn’t stand a chance. Everything was beyond amazing! I recommended a friend from home to go to MMU and she’s now currently in her 3rd year studying PR and marketing and she’s having the best time. She contacted me shortly after starting just to thank me for all of the advice, and said she couldn’t imagine herself anywhere else! The city is incredible, the people are so lovely, and everything is all in one place. Couldn’t have chosen a better university to go to, and I’m so so happy I went there. If I could relive it, I would, even the exams and the coursework!!
I’ve studied here for 2 years (2017-2019). Overall good experience and would recommend.
Good first few months really enjoying my time
Amazing university, with a great support system for struggling students. Facilities are outstanding, Brooks building in particular has helpful staff, great communal area and a good cafeteria.
The best university ( I have been to 2 others, one in Uk and one in France)
Such a good uni with new buildings and amazing staff
Really impressed with the uni, buildings are lovely and modern, lecturers are really helpful and knowledgable I’m happy there !
Great university helpful staff came through clearing so glad i came here everyone is so polite and nice
The facilities are constantly being upgraded so it's a great place for people who do STEM courses. The student union has amazing staff and a union shop which is stocked with food, stationery, hoodies and art supplies. It also has an advice center with staff member that genuinely care and are empathetic to every problem large or small. The careers service is very professional and they will help you in every aspect of job finding from helping you touch up your CV to sending you job vacancies by email every time they are available. Perfect uni in every aspect.
My university surpassed my expectations and I am extremely happy with my choice.
Lovely people, great facilities, some really nice buildings
Inclusive of all students and always gets students together, whether for socials or fairs or meetups. Staff are really helpful and never leave you on your own. Plenty of facilities, plenty of computers, laptops to use if students do not yet have their own. Always food and drink nearby, on compus and in the surroundings.
Attending university to study law and love my lecturers so helpful
Overall had a pretty good experience so far. I’m at the School of Theatre so cant say much about MMU itself
Nice campus, good variety of courses, great social side and useful pastoral care.
Excellent lecturers and facilities.
Very good university for student support, campus is nice and well looked after with good security.
It's got the best well-being support
Overall fantastic experience at MMU. Especially in the politics department.
This uni preaches sustainability but has every student print off their assignments - at a large cost to the student - when they could just be uploaded online! Food is extortionate, from a corporate angle this uni is awful but the student sides - like support and sports, societies etc are amazing, couldn’t fault it!
I’m so so so glad I chose Social Work at MMU. I literally love my course, my teachers are amazing and the Brooks building is brand new. I look forward to uni which I know a lot of people at other unis don’t. Couldn’t recommend more!
Amazing facilities, modern, easy to navigate buildings. Good food choice in canteen, cafes and student union. Lecturers and tutors very helpful and timetable is consistent.
Honestly best uni, it has everything you could wish for socially as well as the study side being amazing. The career hub there is also available for you to use for 2 years after you graduate!
Mainly focused on research and self working
Absolutely hands down the best of Manchester’s two unis!!
Best 3 years of my life! Would recommended the university and the city.
The student support on my course wasn't particularly good. I wasn't told about a lot of things that would have helped me while I studied. My mum was also really ill in my final year and even suffered from a heart attack but I wasn't given the option of extentions as your unit leader has to sign them off and mine refused.
Great facilities and very knowledgable staff
Good services and student support. Each area of the university feels unique.
Great uni, great lecturer, great faculties, not much else you can want
Lovely university with many facilities and information points such at the student hubs. The union is big, bright, and a chill place to relax and meet with your friends. Staff are friendly and the modules for my course (English and Creative Writing) are interesting.
My tutors are really helpful and supportive. The WiFi is really good and the facilities they have great as well!
The careers service could definitely be improved by having more careers related lectures or seminars or making careers appointments available to book online. Also there could be more activities to do around the campus that doesn't include being part of a club or society.
University environment feels very professional and I like it.
Manchester Metropolitan University is a great, historic and modern University! The campus is large and the facilities which are constantly being upgraded, are outstanding, offering students an excellent environment to study and advance their skills. In addition, there are new student hubs where you can be advised and be given solutions to any problems you may have to deal with. The quality of education is high and the professors and the tutors are very helpful and supportive. Finally, I strongly believe that it is a privilege to study in Manchester Metropolitan University
I barely ever went to uni last year cause I lived in daisy bank and it genuinely made me depressed and so unmotivated so I can’t really say
Student support staff are excellent, loved communicating with them, lectures and class teachers are so funny and dead on! Even though I quit uni before I finished my degree due to financial reasons, the university staff are always smiling, helpful and makes you feel welcome as if you were at home !❤️❤️
AMAZING university. In such a good location meaning close access to the city. My course was well taught and allowed me to graduate with a first class degree. First year accommodation is very close to the campus meaning only a short walk is required! most amazing city to live in for three years!
University full of green space. Very modern buildings and upto date. Amazing support from staff.
I had an amazing time at MMU, the psychology faculty are phenomenal and the pole society was so well run and great fun! I recommend MMU to anyone looking to go to university in the North of England!
They have the best staff ever! I had an issue with my enrolment so i went to talk with the student hub and they solved the issue with the biggest smile ever!!
Good modern buildings and good WiFi connection in most. Campus is very close to city centre and most accomodation.
Had the best 3 years at this University!
Help is always close whenever you need it. Theres a society for almost anythung. Easily accessible buildings
Amazing experience at this uni, lectures really informing and lecturers give loads of support
The staff are so bad they don't give a crap about the students and I faced bullying from a senior members at the Cheshire campus last year so I was scared to even go to uni
Incredibly supportive! Always go the extra mile to ensure you do well and enjoy it while you do. I've loved every minute and don't want it to end.
Amazing lectures and small places to revise in. The staff are friendly and the opportunities are endless.
Very unique way of teaching. Focusing on a single subject at one go. Highly recommend it.
Great uni specially school of art
A good uni, with support and good internet
Being an Indian we are used to a lot of career support but while coming to UK I was well aware that it wasn't the case here and I'm glad I chose MMU as they were really helpful .
This uni is amazing. Especially the support the lecturers give to you inside and outside the lectures. The facilities are great and you have all resources by hand if needed.
All the services provided are delivered at the highest standard by the most open and friendly personel on Campus. Buildings are close enough to walk between, whilst getting enough social time and fresh air. Every tutor i've met has been friendly, enthusiastic and insightful, and if they can't help you then they will point you in the right direction. Work is shared on the personal web, sorted by module and week to help organise workload and revision. Looking back on my education, it's clear that we all had different goals and ideals, whereas when studying in MMU, I stood in a room with 500 other people all enthusiastic about the same thing. There are plug sockets available in corridors and halls, wifi wherever you go, even outside in some places, so many oppertunities regarding societies and the union, and all the facilities are top-notch or being improved. Eg, all the buildings have been refurbished, except JD, yet all the facilities in JD match or outshine those in other buildings.
Everything is really good, only improvement could be a club in the union in my opinion
MMU is a good uni for business degrees
Just walking round the City Campus and I feel safe. I think the people that are there are what makes this university. The tutors are lovely, couldn’t have asked for a better first year.
Really good uni with a lot of support and facilities are new
Lovely clean and modern uni, with a lot of help
Great university that I would totally recommend!!
It has been great! Amazing student experience. Everything at your disposal if you need it!!
Just finished my degree here and had such a pleasurable experience the uni do everything possible to make sure try get the most of it
Great friendly happy staff, who are happy to talk and help. Great clean campus. Good food in the food courts. Easy to understand layout. Great computers and second to none ICT services.
My first year has been great, so much help from the university and the union throughout the whole year. The resources and facilities that students have access to helps with everything like assignments as well as the student lifestyle
Amazing uni and great support.
Pretty decent uni. The lecturers were cool.
After studying business here I would reccomend MMU to anyone.
If your looking for a uni that will support you and guide you ready for work, look at another uni I can't fault the facilities or the campus it's clean offerers so much support in that respect but the tutors who actually guide the courses is another thing sadly they don't understand fully what there teacher or are now outdated and don't have the experience necessary to break in to the job world.
Amazing experience in both academic and extra curricular
It is a professional setting and the setting helps to revise and learn since you feel at ease
The campus is pretty good in general. But there’s the issue that the nursing cohorts don’t fit into the Brooks building (for which it was designed), so we use Geoffrey Manton a lot instead. I’ve heard that the clubs and societies are really good, however if you’re a nursing student you rarely have the time to be part of these due to the timings. Student union is really good, cannot fault them. Careers service always contact me, however I’m never used them, they have a good outreach. The internet is quite good in all the buildings.
Had an amazing experience. There was opportunity to get involved in so many different paths and also I had the opportunity to change my course which helped me out. I found what I love to study and also tool the opportunity to change my degree from a BA to a BSC by studying a statistics unit which involves placement- this made me more confident and employable. Staff are friendly and helpful too, they genuinely care about your grades.
Really helpful staff who actually care about students. Lots of opportunities to get involved with extracurricular activities relevant to course. The student jobs range is also great.
Needs to be more activities in society's as I joined one in first year and never heard anything from it now I'm in third year. Other than that, amazing experience
After going to a different uni and moving to man met i can say it’s the best thing i’ve done in my 21 years
When I first went to MMU there was a huge stigma that it wasn’t great because it wasn’t a Russell Group University but I couldn’t be more pleased I went there! I had the best experience at MMU! I ended up graduating with a First class degree with plenty of experience, industry connections, friends made from societies, transferable skills from societies and working at the Union, and so much more! I wouldn’t consider anywhere else to do a Masters course which I would like to do at MMU in a few years! I couldn’t recommend it more! If I could choose any university in the UK to do my degree again at, I would choose MMU all over again!
The teaching and marking is corrupt. The university gives little guidance on careers for students
Absolutely loved this place! Miss it so much! Staff are fantastic, and the atmosphere is amazing!
Having finished my third year this University is incredible. The societies are welcoming and the staff at the Union end up being good people to talk to about pretty much anything. Those who have taught me across my Film and media studies Degree are people who I’m glad to have met and keep in contact with now I’m post my University Degree
Generally a very good uni. Economics department is horrific though.
MMU is inclusive, diverse and students friendly. Accessible for students with disabilities.
Great University with amazing facilities.
Good university with good technology, facilities and always there to help
The clubs and societies are really good and there is lots of them.
Brilliant uni and in a good location
The uni is great, the staff I happenned to meet not so much. I had trouble with people from the staff for being international and I felt really offended
Brilliant, diverse university where student welfare and development is the number one priority. The uni is also continuously investing in the development of new cutting edge facilities
A good university with brilliant resources and staff!
Amazing tutors and good facilities although the library is very small during the exam period
Art school facilities really good
Good, helpful staff, interesting lectures and a range of societies to choose from. A relaxed lecture and exam/coursework schedule. Good vacation times and attendance policy.
Amazing support team and great lecturers. Union is ran by rather undry towels though
Supportive staff, great society choices and availability, accommodation is somewhat over priced but still good quality. Very close to the center of Manchester with tonnes to do!
All round great experience! I loved my time here. The staff really want what is best for you. The Student Union is home to a bar and restaurant, a shop where you can buy groceries and stationary, even a Starbucks! All perks aside, I've learnt a lot here and thoroughly enjoyed it!
Bloody love everything about it
Good science courses with focus on employment
Good facilities. Some buildings are outdated, but are being replaced with new builds. Lectures are great at times, as are seminars. Good access to resources through the library, but again library is getting outdated with desks etc. Teaching hours are limited for some courses, more contact time with tutors would be ideal.
great campus and facilities, great union and oppurtunities through it, could be better societies and just generally more clubs etc
Good facilities, Brad new buildings which are modern. Good app and online services including library,moodle and WiFi throughout the campus. Feel safe at Uni, lots of staff and student hubs to help answer questions etc.
University was good, but the career advisor was wrong about my degree and now MMU won’t let me on to a postgraduate course. Don’t waste your time.
