Famous for music, fashion and sport, Manchester is the fifth largest city in the UK and one of its friendliest.
Six reasons to study English in Manchester
World famous bands such as Oasis, The Smiths and The Stone Roses all came from Manchester, and its music scene is not only one of the most exciting in the UK, but also the world. Huge venues such as the Manchester Arena host international stars such as Katy Perry, while at smaller venues you can catch the latest upcoming acts.
The museums, galleries and culture
Museums such as The Museum of Science & Industry and Imperial War Museum North and galleries like the Oxford Road Art Gallery and Manchester Art Gallery will make learning about arts, culture and history just as much a part of your life as learning English during your time in the city.
Sports teams and facilities
Whether your interest lies in playing, watching, or doing both, Manchester has it all for a sports fan. The legacy of Manchester hosting the 2002 Commonwealth Games means that the public now have access to the same world class facilities as the professionals and, if you want to catch them in action, pick the colour of red or blue and go watch Manchester United or City!
World class universities
If you want to progress to university after your English course, Manchester has two of the best universities in the world. The University of Manchester alone has 25 Nobel Prize winners among its staff and students past and present!
Low cost of living
Money in Manchester will go much further than money in London, with the lower cost of living incorporating the cost of housing, shopping and bills.
