It currently has39,000 students who come from more than 180 countries and thisnumber only looks set to increase.MMU is also a highly popular institute with more than 37,000undergraduates and postgraduates. Receiving over 56,000applications in 2011/12, MMU is one of the most applied-foreducation establishments in the UK, clearly demonstrating thedesire for people to live and study in Manchester.Vita Student is a natural fit for Manchester, as its 100,000 students meanthis is the perfect location for investors to capitalise on a continually thrivingdemand for high-quality student accommodation.Vita StudentManchester28 29ManchesterTownhallManchesterMetropolitanUniversityWith more than 100,000 students, Manchester hasthe greatest student population in the UK and thehighest number of international students in Europe,with over 10,000 foreign students living in the city.At The University of Manchester, one in fourstudents are from abroad, and ManchesterMetropolitan University has more than 2,800studens from 109 countries.Despite such a high number of international students livingin Manchester, there is currently no high-quality studentaccommodation in the city centre built specifically with theirneeds in mind.By delivering Manchester’s first luxury student residence, VitaStudent will fill this gap and create a fantastic opportunity forinvestors to take advantage of the high demand for its properties.

Students from China make up over a third ofall international students in the country, with a 17% rise in the last yearalone.Manchester is home to the highest population of Chinese students inthe UK, totaling over 3,000; 1,000 more than other university city.Home to Premiership football teams Manchester United andManchester City Football ClubThe first industrial city in the UK and still one of Britain’s most important cities inthe UK with regards to its economy, business, investment and cultural significanceThe University of Manchester is 180 years old, while MMU has a 150-year history,and both are among the most popular universities in the UKManchester Airport has been named as the Best UK Airport in 2012 at the TravelWeekly Globe Awards and more than six million passengers use it every yearManchester was ranked in the top ten cities in Europe for its transport connections(Cushman & Wakefield European Cities Monitor 2011) due to its airport, Metrolink,motorway links, trains and buses.BeethamTowerLuxury 1 bedroom studioswith 9% Net minimum rentalreturn assured for 2 years.From £77,950
