Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Manchester

I love the uni and can't wait to start clinical years, but i have nothing but negative comments about PBL. I don't think it is effective for anyone and it is much safer to teach our future doctors via lecture based study than PBL. It should take a more integrated approach. read full review
The course is very interesting and challenging however I think this year it has been badly taught. Most of the online lectures do not go into the detail nessersary to answer questions.

The other facilities of the uni which have heightened my experience are the sports teams. The sporting facilities are very good here.

The libary and other study spaces are also very nice. read full review
This particular academic year has been relatively challenging owing to pandemic.However, the University has arranged everything so nicely that we didnt experience any difficulties with our studies .Ofcourse the use if technology did facilitate the process. read full review
Plenty of opportunities available throughout the course itself and medical and non medical societies to join. Great mix of international students and postgrad too. Problem based learning has been helpful for the lifelong approach to learning. read full review
I am enjoying my time at the university so far. It is a very supportive environment created by the staff and is reflected by the students as well. Medicine is a very difficult and competitive course, and I cant imagine not having this supportive environment around me.
Despite this, the question about value of money raises an important issue, especially for me as an international student. I have not felt this year has been a good value for money given that we could not access all the facilities at the university as we normally would. In addition, much work has been converted to online (which i understand is throughout the country) but has put more pressure on students. Nevertheless, I do believe that UoM is a safe environment to be in even in this situation, especially with a difficult course read full review
It’s been challenging, but by and large I can’t see how it could have been handled any differently. Would have liked it to have been easier to set up remote working but otherwise I have few complaints towards the university read full review

I am really enjoying my time at the University of Manchester so far. The Medicine course is great. The support I receive from the university is very good. The medical school seems less pressured than other medical schools, it seems to me. read full review
Been enjoying my experience as a masters student at UoM even though I don't have complete access to my course but I' trying to make the most of it. Would love the benefit of in-person teaching - even just something to make it seem more "real". Fingers crossed I can gain access to labs for my dissertation in the summer and that'll be a coup. read full review
