Living in Manchester
With its award-winning museums, art galleries, theatres and international concert hall, Manchester is a vibrant and thriving artistic centre. It hosts the largest student population of any European city, yet the city is compact enough for everything to be easily accessible. Manchester is also very much an international city in terms of its restaurants, clubs and café life. There are also ample opportunities for shopping in Manchester’s rejuvenated city centre or the nearby Trafford Centre shopping mall. Another aspect of Manchester life is the easy access to spectacular countryside: the Pennines and Peak District National Park, Snowdonia National Park in Wales and the beauties of the Lake District National Park. Manchester has its own international airport and there is a regular train service to London that takes about 120 minutes.
The cost of living in Manchester is similar to that of any other European city, but accommodation and transport are generally less expensive than might be expected, and certainly much less than London. Modern student accommodation inclusive of bills can be rented for around £95 per week (see below).
