Each site has its own specialist, cutting edge facilities and resources within a friendly and supportive atmosphere.

Manchester is an exciting and cosmopolitan city with a huge variety of bars, pubs and clubs, restaurants and cafés to choose from. With Manchester’s selection of entertainment you will never be short of things to do. It is one of the largest student cities in Europe with four universities, all of which have excellent links with us.

The city provides a host of music and theatre venues (including Bridgewater, the Opera House, the Palace Theatre and the Royal Exchange Theatre), libraries, museums, art galleries and cinemas. As well as being home to the world-famous Manchester United Football Club, the city is also well-known for its world-class sporting facilities developed for the 2002 Commonwealth Games.

Manchester is surrounded by areas of outstanding natural beauty, which are easy to reach by road and rail links. The Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales, and the Derbyshire Peak District National Park are within relatively short distances of Manchester and attract many thousands of visitors each year.
