Student Ratings for Manchester Metropolitan University

Student satisfaction:
4.2 (based on student ratings)
Google ratings:
4 (based on 363 student ratings)
Facebook ratings:
4 (based on 525 student ratings)

“The level of tuition that I received in my Computer Science bachelor’s degree surpassed my expectations, and my understanding was taken to new heights. If I had to complain about anything it would be that sometimes the university would make mistakes in organising the dates of our exams, which really disturbed our preparation in some ways.”

“The amount of clubs, societies and volunteer events that there are have improved my social life on-campus completely. Importantly, students here aren’t so busy that they can’t participate in these activities like in some other universities.”

About Manchester Metropolitan University

PROS

  • Student accommodation is just a short walk away from campus, and comes with study spaces, social areas, and energy bills that are already included in the fee.
  • Students highlight that there are many volunteering projects, clubs, and societies to choose from. This in combination with all the activities that Manchester has to offer creates an experience that students don’t easily forget.

CONS

  • There is poor communication from the university’s side, according to the students it can become an issue when there are changes of exam dates or timetable shifts.
  • The university has little sense of community, with students expressing that most of those attending the university are absorbed by their routine.
