welcome to MANCHESTER
Manchester is the biggest city in the North West and has one of the largest student communities in the UK.
Our Manchester campus, which hosts both our legal and business courses, is located in the heart of the city, close to leading law firms and Manchester Piccadilly Train Station. The Metrolink, which connects the whole of Manchester and surrounding areas, is just a 2 minute walk from campus. The city has a thriving nightlife with plenty of bars, theatre and live music venues to choose from. Perfect for student life, Manchester is rich in art, fashion and heritage, and is as proud of its music scene as it is of its football teams. It has a thriving and diverse economy including business, legal and professional services.
Our campus has an amazing view of Piccadilly Gardens and is close to the main shopping area in Manchester with many shops offering student discounts. The campus’ workshop rooms are where you will spend most of your time whilst studying with us. Large groups and workshops are hosted here to enable you to learn collaboratively with your fellow students, making studying with us both effective and engaging. Our library resources are extensive and library courses are offered to those who need help navigating legal and business databases when studying.
You will have many opportunities to get involved in activities and events beyond your studies at our Manchester campus and will even have the option to start a society yourself. There is also a café on-site with a games area – a great place to unwind with friends.
Our employability service has career consultants that can give you advice on CVs and application forms, and help you prepare for interviews by conducting mock interviews. Our dedicated team will support you in finding work experience and pro bono opportunities that will boost your CV. We have reserved accommodation for undergraduate students in Manchester called Park View, which is a modern student accommodation complex that is just a 20 minute bus ride from campus.
At Manchester, our tutors and staff pride themselves on delivering the pinnacle of legal and business education and are dedicated to helping you achieve your career ambitions. Our tutors are all industry professionals that will teach you the practical skills needed to kick start your career.
