Diversity is the name of the game

4.0/5
Overall
The University of Manchester truly impresses when it comes to the diversity of its students. With 40,000 students a year, 25% are international students and that makes for a studying experience like no other. My undergraduate degree in Politics, Philosophy and Economics, allowed me to get exposed to many professors and topics that I would have never imagined of covering throughout my time in the UK. Crucially however, one of the best aspects of the university was being able to mingle with the wide range of international students from each of those disciplines. If you are looking for a fulfilling university experience, Manchester is the place to go.

Pros
A true international university with one of the largest student societies in Europe
Cons
The city itself may be considered to be too small for some, and this may prove to be something to consider.

Overall
The three years I spent at the  University of Manchester provided me with an indispensable experience as a Mathematics undergrad and as part of the student community . During my mathematics course I was able to specialist in specific areas subject to my own personal preference and given expert teaching and direction. 
The city has much to offer by way of culture and events, which meant it was the perfect place to develop oneself outside of the teaching environment and meet a great set of people in a captivating student environment.

Overall
Courses provided by the university for my degree were amazing in their variety and delivery. Teachers were clearly passionate about their respective subjects and enjoyed sharing their knowledge and experience with us. University campus is one of the most welcoming places I have ever been to, and also one of the most versatile places I have ever been to. Thanks to the hundreds of student societies there is always something there for anyone to do, regardless of your interests.

I wish I had known...
That manchester is the rainiest city in England would have made me think twice. Also if I had known how expensive and polluted it was over here I would have chosen somewhere else--like Puerto rico or hawaii. I am suffering from seasonal disorder and poverty over here.

It is a quick Masters degree compaired to most programs in the USA. So that is effeicient--but, if you want real specialisation stay at home.

Final comments
Save lots of money before coming. Bring lots of sweaters. Prepare to depend on public transport--it is truly a good experience to be car-free for awhile--everyone should at least try it for the earth's sake. I recommend a trip to the lake district and a trip down to glastonbury for beautiful country side and warm friendly people.

Erasmus was the best experience I have had in my live for so many reasons that it is not easy to explain. you should try it and that you could understand why people, after such an experience, change so much!

Course recommendations
Just don't choose your courses before getting there. I was lucky because my first choice (in Brussels) was not definitive. You definitely have to attend the lectures before selecting them.

Personal comments
Facilitating the contacts between international and local students because the latter usually treat us like lazy clubbers who don't care about the lectures. Some international students are really struggling with the lectures and the language itself so it would be useful to help them. To share your notes with an Erasmus student is not a CRIME !
