Student & Alumni Comments

"It was a career-shaping experience which gave me lots of opportunities to create my own future and develop myself and my work. The community is great at MMU and everyone is supportive and tries to push your work to the next level. The only thing I feel would help students develop more is smaller class sizes."


"Facilities and teaching are of the highest calibre and truly support students to push the limits of their creative minds. "


"Manchester School of Art has good facilities and an outstanding staff that work very hard to help students fulfill their potential. I had the support I needed to gain confidence and do my best both creatively and academically. Toward the end of my studies I realised that more support with careers and potential fields of employment would be an area to improve."


"Very underrated school. The campus and resources provided to students are of the highest quality. Teachers are very professional and attentive to each student's individual needs. "
