Welcome freshers and returning students

Welcome to Manchester – if it’s your first time here then I guess you are pretty busy finding out what you like & dislike about the city. I can assure you it doesn’t rain ALL the time (though a waterproof and wellies can be pretty handy!)

Manchester has a reputation as a party city and there is certainly plenty to keep you entertained! To make the best of your time at university you need to work hard and play hard.  I don’t just mean study hard – you need to get involved in volunteering, clubs, societies and get work experience.  A degree on its own is simply is not enough to get a good job and it’s never to early to start.
