Manchester is a modern city that is dynamic, welcoming and energetic with stunning architecture, fascinating museums, award winning attractions and a burgeoning restaurant and bar scene.
Manchester is also a hot-bed of cultural activity. From the thriving and dominant music scene which gave birth to groups as diverse as Oasis and the Halle Orchestra, to one of the many world class festivals and the rich sporting heritage. Throw into the mix an impressive range of galleries and museums (the majority of which offer free entry) and visitors are guaranteed to be stimulated and invigorated.

We are accessible via all major public transport routes and our Manchester campus is situated 0.25 miles from Manchester Oxford Road train station and less than 1 mile from Manchester Piccadilly. We are located 9 miles from Manchester airport with frequent trains running to and from the city centre.
In the city centre, our Manchester Campus is well connected by many types of transport. Where possible, we encourage the use of walking or cycling to access the campus.
