Manchester has been named UK’s most liveable city 2019 in Economist’s Global Liveability Index, and 38th most liveable city in the world. No wonder international students are coming to this sought-after city!
As an international student looking to study English at a respectable English language school, choosing the right city can have a strong impact on your language skills, accommodation, friends and overall integration within the culture.
So why should you choose Manchester as your number 1 destination for your English studies?

- Manchester – the city of everything
When you take a break from your studies, Manchester has a lot to offer! From an infinite number of art galleries and museums to shopping centres and concerts with artists like Ariana Grande, Beyoncé, Lady Gaga (etc.) you will never get bored!
The nightlife is booming and you can check out the most popular clubs and pubs – all of them with cheap entry and open all week long. Each night has a specific theme and during weekends you can experience the rave scene.
Manchester is also very well positioned on the map. You have a great starting point from here to the rest of the United Kingdom and you can take one day trips all over the country. You can also set your base here to explore the rest of Europe! From Manchester airport, you have direct flights to Amsterdam (Netherlands), Paris (France), New York (USA), Dubai (UAE), Naples (Italy), several cities in Greece and many more!
- Diversity at its home
In Manchester, you will meet people from all over! You will make contact with people from different backgrounds and cultures. This will make your immersion in British culture a lot easier. It is believed you will hear over 200 different languages on the street of Manchester!
With this in mind, studying an intensive English language course in a short amount of time can be overwhelming. However, Manchester is the place where you can surround yourself in British culture at your own pace. You can pick up something new about contemporary British culture every day, because this city is also a modern city.
One of the reasons why we encourage international students to check Homestays programmes is specifically because they will have help in their quest of exploring this culture and learning English on a superior level. You don’t have to be alone and we are here to help. Check our website to contact us or to book accommodation with us.
Here at Bunkout, we connect international students with local hosts. You’ll share a meal, learn customs, hear stories and enjoy traditions with the people that make the place what it is. If you want to live with a host and be part of an authentic British experience, you can contact us at 07908 708896 (if you are in the UK already) or write us an email on email@example.com
