We’re launching a new student-led campaign to share your student experiences moving to and living in Manchester, and to help prepare incoming students for life in our wonderful city.
This activity is brought to you by The Union in partnership with Manchester Community Central

Tell us about your experience via video or text!

Guide questions:

To help you get started and think along the right lines, here are some questions you can consider and answer:

·         What’s the one thing you wish you would have known when you arrived at Manchester Met?

·         Is there something a friend, course mate or flatmate taught you that surprised you?

·         Have you discovered a corner of your home in the city that you would like to share? Ie: a supermarket, event, or classes.

·         What’s something you’ve learnt that you feel a bit embarrassed that you didn’t know? (PS: there’s nothing to be embarrassed about, we are always learning).

How did your first week, the first 24hrs in the UK look like
