Work-life balance

Manchester is one of the most dynamic and lively places in Europe. A big city with a compact and friendly centre. A trendsetting music and style capital that still has a place for traditional street markets and local pubs. A place with an illustrious past that’s always at the cutting edge of what’s new.

Manchester’s ability to welcome and embrace change throughout its history has given it a rare energy. Manchester was at the epicentre of the industrial revolution, and the spirit that brought the world into the modern age is evident in its trademark Victorian buildings and monuments, such as the gothic Town Hall in Albert Square. But over the last few years the city centre has undergone an extensive transformation. New public spaces have been created and imaginative buildings and developments have appeared, reshaping Manchester’s skyline.

Manchester also sets itself apart in terms of sporting prowess with two of the biggest football clubs on the planet. The changes to the city’s infrastructure as a result of the success of the 2002 Commonwealth Games has left first-class sports facilities for all the public to enjoy, especially students.

The University of Manchester is at the heart of this exciting city - geographically, historically and culturally. The campus is just a short walk from the city centre and all its attractions. And our own buildings and history are integral to Manchester’s unique character.

Manchester has a wealth of attractions for its residents: from arts and culture, to pubs and clubs, sport, and the nearby countryside.

Out and about

Celebrated as the culture capital of the North, Manchester offers impressive Victorian architecture, an ever-increasing number of galleries and museums, and an abundance of theatre and live music performances.

The nightlife is also buzzing every night of the week, and with over 500 licensed premises in the city centre there is a plethora of bars, restaurants and clubs to suit every taste.

Sporting Manchester

Apart from the excellent facilities of the University, there are many diversions for sports fans.

For football fans, there is both United’s “theatre of dreams” Old Trafford ground and City’s Etihad Stadium.

Also worthy of a visit is the Olympic swimming pool at Manchester’s Aquatic Centre, Manchester Velodrome and the Old Trafford cricket ground.

Further afield

Manchester is well placed in the North West to take day trips out to nearby cities such as Liverpool and Leeds or seaside resorts of Blackpool and Southport.

For more leisurely trips, Greater Manchester is surrounded by the beautiful countryside of Cheshire and rural Lancashire and is also in driving distance of the Lake District, Peak District and North Yorkshire.
