Overview

Manchester Metropolitan University is one of the largest universities in the UK with over 37,000 students from 130 countries currently enrolled. The University has links with over 70 professional bodies and associations, recognising both the quality and practical focus of the course provision, with over 1,800 students per year taking a work placement sandwich. It has more professionally accredited courses than any other UK university.

The University is split into eight faculties for areas such as Business and Law, Humanities Languages and Social Science and Art. The central campus is located in Manchester city centre, with a second campus in Cheshire. Manchester is one of the largest providers of science, engineering and technology education in the UK and an international leader in clothing design and technology. 92% of Manchester Met graduates go straight into work or further study within six months of graduation.

Manchester Metropolitan University's dedicated student services team offers international students career advice, counselling, learning support, and chaplaincy. The University offers free language support for international students in the form of lessons and individual consultations. At the beginning of the year there is a meet and greet service from Manchester International Airport to help new international students find their way to the University.

There are also private halls of residence around Manchester and Crewe which offer the chance to meet students from other universities. The university also owns Manchester Student Homes, who can advise on finding private accommodation.

Location

Manchester Metropolitan University has three campuses in the dynamic city of Manchester and one in nearby Crewe in Cheshire. Both locations offer study, leisure, sport, social and entertainment facilities, as well as excellent accommodation.

Manchester Metropolitan University is located close to the centre of the city with a mix of coffee shops, theatres, museums, clothes shops, shopping centres, café bars, pubs, clubs and towering apartment blocks. London is just under two and a half hours away by train. Students can enjoy all the advantages of being part of a large and varied university, but do so in a campus environment that offers a sense of community, security and easy access to local towns.
