“Hollings Campus Main”

Good Union, Great Area, Nice People

Crime and Violence, Buildings, Location

I am currently studying at the Manchester Metropolitan University at the Hollings campus in Fallowfield studying Events Management. On the course elsewhere. I have enjoyed my first year at the Met, the let downs of the hollings campus is the lack of lifts in a seven floor building, the...

“Best of Three”

published 25/04/2002

They enrol people, not grades

Some campuses are a bit spread out.

I am now nearing the end of second year of study at Manchester Metropolitan University, affectionately known as ManMet or MMU. My course is Consumer Marketing and I’m reading for a Degree. Initially I never wanted to go to university. All the way through high school I wanted to be a chef...

“Whippin' Piccadilly”

published 23/08/2005

Too many to count!

Rainy weather, a few dodgy surrounding areas

When the topic of which university we should attend came up at college, it crept up and took me completely by surprise. I knew I wanted to study a degree somewhere, but it was only when my then boyfriend starting applying left, right and centre for places that I realised I might need to put in a...

Disadvantages:* Some buildings need updating, the ...

Last year I was on my Foundation Year at MMU I passed that and I'm now on a BSc Information Technology course. I live at home in Warrington and travel each day because it's only a 15 minute train journey. The University are always putting money in for improvements. A new law building that is also...

“You wont regret going”

A lot of students will have finished their A-Levels and will have decided which university to go to if that is what they want. Manchester Met is a university that my sister attends and having visited their many time I can thoroughly recommend it. The entry grades are not as quite tough as Umist...

Great Union

Although I didn't actually go to the Met Uni, I can thoroughly recommend the Students Union as a great place to go in the evening. I went to Manchester University and although the Union was ok, it was a bit grotty, especially in the Cellar. I started going to the Met Union as I had a friend there...

“teacher training”

published 02/10/2000

saves money

none

The Crewe institute of education is in my opinion excellent, but I feel that one has to be extremely ruthless when choosing your course at it can often save you a huge amount of money. for example: A four year course in primary education ICT would cost you 4 years of maintenace loan plus four...

GREAT ATMOSPHERE

WEATHER

Being a fresher, at a Manchester Met can be a very dauting experience, but my experience was totally different. I found myself going to all the wrong lectures, the staff are sooo committed here, its unbelivable! Manchester Met has a lot to offer students, the adcademic side of the university is...

“this place is great”

published 25/04/2004

great sports teams

poor food

I go to part of the manchester metropolitan university in Alsager. Its such a nice place to live, great scenery. Its in the middle of no where, but the student union organises nights out into the closest town for clubbing. Which if you go with the right people you can have the best night ever. As...

“MMU Hell??”

published 20/05/2004

Studying in Manchester

2nd rate university??

I studyed BA(Hons) Criminology & Contemporary Culture (3yrs) at MMU, Geoffrey Manton Building. The university itself is quite modern with above average facilities. Most staff were above average also, however getting hold of them outside of lecture/seminar hours proves extremely challenging...

good social life

Medium cost accommodation and crime

Manchester Metropolitan University is one of the 2 big universities in Manchester (Greater Manchester as a whole of course has more). It used to be a polytechnic but got upgraded to university status towards the end of the last century. In my opinion it excels in its vocational and arts subjects...
