There was just one introductory session in freshers week, where we were able to meet the people we would be with for the next three years. They helped us to get to know each other through activities in this session which put me at ease as I previously knew no body. The freshers fair was really helpful aswell. I lived in Needham Court and it was amazing. My room was large and I had my own bathroom as I chose a more expensive accommodation. The security were really helpful and we had their number should we need them. The halls were clean and I felt safe. I spent much of my time in the Library and I thought it was outstanding. There was also study pods in the Business school which I used often which was nice as a change of scenery when studying. I thought the food in the student union was overpriced and always took over an hour to come, so I did not spend much time there, but the rest of the facilities were amazing. I enjoyed having big lectures and then have tutorials afterwards where it was more intimate and I could ask questions. The content was mostly really engaging and I thoroughly enjoyed them. I like that we had to tap our cards on entry to sign in, as it encouraged me to make it to the early lectures rather than to sleep in. I am from a small town in somerset so I enjoyed being in Manchester. There was a buzzing student atmosphere due to there being so many universities and everyone mingled. The city was big enough to have unlimited things to do, but small enough that I quickly learnt my way around. I also loved how safe it felt, I would often walk home from work o deansgate locks to my flat by Manchester arena at night and feel very safe.

I'm currently in my Year 2 and I've loved every minute of university, from both the studying to the partying! In my Year 1 I met some of my best friends living in halls of residence and I think these will be friends for life. The nightlife is amazing in Manchester; there is a new type of club night every week, but I prefer the 90's music themed nights at Fifth Avenue club. My university provides lots of help regarding internships and cv assistance, making me feel more confident about my future.

It was unique and quite fun to attend, full of information and good introductions with out tutors I cant say much about accommodation as I live at home The library is full spaces to do work and full of high spec computers with the correct programs to complete assignments. The sports area allows us to attend many variation of sports Lectures are not boring and full of relevant information. The assignments given to us help us find new techniques and ways to learn The city life in manchester is very full of energy and is vibrant and refreshing

My university has been a rollercoaster. Before uni started, I was having panic attacks about making friends and coping with my degree. One year down the line I can honestly say that this year has been the best year of my life.

I loved it, I was busy every day of the week and my course made the effort of getting us all together for a drink. The course is very sociable and staying in halls meant I was surrounded by like minded people who were up for clubbing and having a good time. The accommodation was well run, clean and sociable. I can't fault it. I stayed in Birley and I was very pleased with it however it was overpriced in comparison to other cities. However the facilities and style of the accommodation is great. The facilities were good, there was some good activities and the living spaces were nice. The only downside is the washing machines, there aren't many for the number of people in the accommodation and they're overpriced. The course is really fun and interesting, combining fashion and business makes it more enjoyable and easier to learn. The lectures are interesting and interesting well taught and the facilities offered and high quality. Manchester is my favourite city, there's so much going on and always new places to go you never run out of things to do. It has such a nice feel to it, perfect place for a student to live.

Freshers week was exciting, fun, and a great start to university. I wish I could go back to freshers! I didn't stay in accommodation but I stayed in a private flat. An MMU lecturer rents her flat and it's a lovely place to live The facilities are great. I often use the library to study and the food is great

It was brilliant, full of interesting freshers fairs and some brill nights out The halls were amazing, clean tidy and modern The library was good, with plenty of silent study and group study spaces. The STEM facilities at the university were great as well with all the modern tech needed for my course The lectures are in-depth and interesting. The staff are passionate! They care so plenty about student engagement. The city life was amazing! Full of bars and restaurants. It has plenty of culture to take in from art galleries to the northern quarter and its wealth of independent businesses

This year freshers week didn't happen because of covid. But previously freshers week has been fun. Nights out in Manchester and getting to know new people, what's not to love. I wasn't in accommodation. I've been living at home and commuting. However, I've still felt fully a part of the university experience The library is really well organised. There is lots of documents and books online which makes for easy access, even from home. There's also lots of study space available in the library The best part of lecturers is being taught by experiences in there field who are passionate about what they do. This means that all lecturers and seminars are up to date material. As well as being excellent educators, the staff also genuinely care for your personal wellbeing and look after you. Manchester City centre is thriving. Lots of bars, restaurants and clubs. You are never short of something to do
