12 Reasons You NEED To Intern in Manchester

1) Manchester is the BEST city to live in! The Economist says so!

Every year, The Economist compiles the Global Liveability Survey and Manchester frequently comes out the top place to live in the UK, topping the list in the 2015 study. Andrew Stokes, chief executive at Marketing Manchester, said: “We’ve got award-winning museums and galleries, a packed calendar of theatre and cultural events, a burgeoning food and drink sector and class sports institutions like Manchester United and Manchester City throwing a global spotlight on to the city each weekend. Combine this with rapidly improving infrastructure and fantastic investment and careers opportunities and you have the making of a very exciting place to live.” Can't argue with that!

2) Aaandd... Experts estimate that living in Manchester is 40% cheaper than London! Do more on less cash!

It is estimated that food is 12% cheaper, entertainment is 23% cheaper and transport a whopping 46% cheaper!

3) Curry Mile – that’s a thing!

Imagine nothing but curry houses for an entire mile! Only in Manchester! Manchester is also very multi-cultural so if curry isn’t really your thing you could always try chips and gravy – a famous Mancunian cuisine!

4) Manchester = Music... think Oasis, Take That, The Smiths, Stone Roses, Elbow, Happy Mondays, Buzzcocks, The Chemical Brothers, The Verve, Simply Red, Joy Division…

Be sure to check out Manchester’s abundant music venues when in town! Check out Deaf Institute, Roadhouse, Ruby Lounge, Night&Day… CRCC Asia can’t wait to show you around.

5) Manchester is a great place to see the UK from!

The “Oxford Road Corridor” is the busiest bus route in Europe! From the CRCC Asia accommodation, you are well placed to visit Leeds, Liverpool and even Scotland as well as London and the South. You're also not far from Manchester International Airport to see the rest of Europe!

6) Manchester United!

You don’t have to be a sports fan to recognize one of the world’s biggest brands! You can’t come to Manchester without a stadium tour so of course we have included that in our program for the humble brag once you get back home! ....we've also heard there's another team called 'Manchester City'

7) It’s not all city – some of Britain’s most beautiful countryside is a train ride away

Head to the picturesque Peak District or Lake District, not far from Manchester and breathe in the fresh air of the British countryside!

8) Or if cities are your thing, it’s very close to other great Northern towns

Liverpool (home of the Beatles and the Grand National horse race), Sheffield (Sheffield FC - the oldest football club in the World, Arctic Monkeys), Leeds (where the first moving picture was recorded and where you will find the largest indoor market in Europe), Newcastle (where Jimmy Hendrix once busked and the windscreen wiper was invented) and London is also very accessible...

9) Manchester has one of the lowest gender pay gaps in the UK.

Manchester is leading the way for workplace gender equality!

10) The people!

We will let you find this out for yourself but the stereotype is that Mancunians are the loveliest and friendliest of them all! Plus they sure know how to have a good time! Famous Mancunians include The Spice Girl's Mel B, World War 2 hero, Alan Turing, International Superstar Morrissey, Oscar-winning Director Danny Boyle, World-famous artist LS Lowry and honorary Mancunian, Sir Alex Ferguson, our friendly Host Company partners and Program Managers to guide you through your time here with us.  

11) Even the street art is something to write home about!

Head to the Northern Quarter to see Manchester's outdoor gallery. Or if street art is not quite your thing, you can see Lowry's pieces, at the Lowry Museum or a treasure trove of World-class pieces at Manchester Art Gallery.
