London School of Business & Finance Manchester campus is located in the heart of the UK’s third-largest city and is one of the most exciting study destinations in the world. Manchester has a long history as a hub of commercial and financial activity that stretches back to the Industrial Revolution, and the city is a renowned centre of learning. Already home to two of the UK’s largest universities, employers are well aware of the city’s record for academic rigour; meaning a qualification gained in Manchester is a globally recognised asset.

Manchester has a wide variety of accommodation to suit the needs and budgets of everyone who comes to study in the city. Manchester’s city centre is the fastest growing residential city centre in the UK, with stylish new apartment blocks springing up all over the city on a regular basis.
Canal-side neighbourhoods such as Deansgate and Castlefield are popular for young people coming to Manchester, while the more traditional student areas of Fallowfield and Withington provide a slightly cheaper alternative. Another popular area for students is Didsbury, in the south of the city. The leafy suburb provides a more laid back option than the city centre or the typical student areas, yet it has all the amenities right on its doorstep in Didsbury Village and surrounding areas.
Cost of living
Another great benefit of studying in Manchester is the comparatively low cost of living. Rent is significantly cheaper than in London, giving many more students the opportunity to live in the city centre within walking distance to class. However, it’s also good to know that should you want to visit London, you’re not far away. The new high-speed West Coast Main Line means that you can get from Manchester to central London by train in a little over two hours.
With reasonably priced bus and tram networks running throughout Manchester, getting around is also cheaper than most other cities in the UK. Your student card will also entitle you to substantial discounts at a number of restaurants, shops, cinemas, bars and clubs as well as buses and trains.
