Affordable, student-friendly living

Manchester is welcoming to international students, and offers more cost-effective living than other big cities. It's been named the best UK city in which to live, and for good reason.

Whatever your tastes, you'll find plenty to enjoy. From listening to the freshest live music, to visiting over 50 museums and galleries, and browsing more than 250 stores at the Trafford Centre mall.

And when people think of Manchester, they naturally think of sport.

Home to two of the UK's most famous football clubs, the city also boasts the Manchester Aquatics Centre and the Manchester Velodrome – both of which were built for the 2002 Commonwealth Games. And the renowned Sportcity complex is less than 2 miles from the INTO Manchester Study Centre.

The INTO Manchester Leadership Programme offers you the chance to boost your personal skills and confidence. Over 10 weeks of informal workshops, you'll explore topics such as power, courage, innovation and vision.

As well as helping you make new friends, it will also help you practise expressing opinions in English, advance your team-working skills, and impress potential employers.
