Manchester is one of the Europe’s premier universities. Its merger with UMIST in 2004 made it the largest campus university in the UK. In 2007 Manchester’s careers service was voted the best in the UK for the fifth year running by the Association of Graduate Recruiters.
Manchester itself is a dynamic, modern city with a vibrant culture. The cost of living is less than in London. It is conveniently located, with a major international airport, and two hours by train from the UK’s capital. In Old Trafford, home of Manchester United, it has one of the world’s most famous sports stadiums: nor must we forget the City of Manchester stadium, home of Manchester City and the 2002 Commonwealth Games.
