Why Manchester?

Whether it's to experience the fantastic affordable welcoming city; the opportunity to find a community that you belong to; or for the chance to live in one of our many vibrant halls of residence. Second year student Aidan took to the streets of our University campus to ask current students at The University of Manchester why they chose to study here.
