With a bustling city centre, lively nightlife and sports scene, plenty of public transport options, schools, colleges, universities, galleries, museums and more, there are all the ingredients here for an amazing time as a student.

Manchester has been settled since before Roman times, so it has evolved over time into a sprawling, diverse and culturally interesting city.

Recent investment has meant much of the city has undergone renovation and renewal. There’s still a lot of history here, but there’s also a lot that’s new, like The Printworks and the Corn Exchange, for example.

Despite its size, the modern city is friendly and caters to every conceivable taste, interest or lifestyle.

Liverpool has one of the best nightlife scenes in the country. Bars, pubs, bistros, clubs and more are all across the city, many within walking distance of our Liverpool city centre student accommodation. As the birthplace of The Beatles, Liverpool is naturally home to a host of buzzing music venues.

With four universities and several colleges, plus lots of culture, arts, music and more, you’ve chosen an amazing place to study!
