University of Manchester is an exchange destination for Utrecht University Bachelor and Master students of the faculty of Humanities in Manchester, United Kingdom.

"The city is a nice, eclectic mix of different people, cultures, and architecture. It might not be the most spectacular city, but I think that that is actually a good thing - it allows to you become a part of the city without being completely overwhelmed by it" - experience from a former exchange student
