The city of Manchester has evolved over the years to an incredibly modern city, with great history, culture, and a large social scene. An Experience here would be extremely sociable as the campus is located in the heart of the city.
Other schools in the program will again alter your experience, take Saint Andrew’s for example. Saint Andrews is a town based in the county of Fife, Scotland and is home to around 17,000 people. Because of it’s size the university plays a massive part in the community. Its hard to walk around the town without seeing or recognizing someone from the university.
