Our Student Reps are going to be regularly sharing their experiences of life at Manchester Met with you on our blog.
They have all started studying at the University this year, so they know exactly how you feel about making decisions about what and where to study. They are also real-life, actual students so they can tell you what it is really like to study here and live in Manchester.
They’ll be posting regularly throughout the year so make sure you subscribe to the blog to find out what they have been up to.
“Hi, my name is Toby. I am almost twenty-one years old, so if you own a time machine – please contact me. I am studying Psychology at Manchester Metropolitan University and if you were to tell my younger self this, he would be very confused as he is yet to realise how much he HATES Maths and Physics.”
“Hi, I’m Izzy, an 18 year old BA(Hons) Economics and Politics student at MMU.
I decided to study at Manchester Met because I loved the city. My Dad is from Bury, just outside of Manchester so I have fond memories of Christmases and summers in and around Manchester. I went to both open days available and just fell in love with the vibe and the area.”
“Kon’nichiwa! Saying hello in Japanese felt better to be honest with you anyway……My name is Elijah, I am 22 years old and currently studying a Foundation year for Computer Games Technology as well as Japanese beginners. I am originally from Leeds, but then moved to York, where it is really, really cold.”
“Hi, my name is Georgie and I study BA (Hons) International Fashion Promotion at Manchester Metropolitan University. I chose to study here because the Fashion Institute looked so impressive when I visited and the course seemed perfect for me. Everyone I spoke to, staff and students, were all so approachable and friendly and genuinely wanted to answer my questions.”
“My name is Dale and I am a postgraduate student at MMU studying MA Filmmaking in the wonderful School of Art. I began student life in Brighton, where I successfully completed my beloved undergrad. Most people consider graduation a long-awaited sigh of relief and end to student life, no more spaghetti hoops at midnight and coffee fuelled essay writing, but the promise of a £22k starting salary and cosmopolitan lunch dates with the new office girls. However, my graduation left me feeling major anxiety and there was a niggling feeling of dread at the thought of working a 9-5 that I wasn’t ready for. I couldn’t help but want to don the university lanyard for just a little longer.”
About our student reps
Our student reps are all current first year students studying at the University. Our students are paid for their time. We may make minor edits to their posts and provide them with topics to write about that we think will be of interest to prospective students, but we never tell them what to write. Their thoughts and opinions are their own and are based on their own personal experiences of studying at Manchester Met.
The views expressed in these blog posts are those of the individual who wrote them and should not be construed as the views of Manchester Metropolitan University.
