    • Your first day at New College Manchester

    The first day is often the most difficult for many of our students as this is often the first time that they have visited the UK.

    This is why we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on our emergency number (this was given to you in your arrival pack).

    Pre-arranged pick up

    If you arrange an airport pick up, the taxi service will take you directly to either your accommodation or to the college depending on your time of arrival. We will need your full flight information including arrival time and any transits you might be making on the way.

    Although Manchester is the most convenient airport for New College Group, we appreciate that sometimes students will arrive at different airports across the country.

    We are able to offer transfer services from other airports within a 1 hour drive from Manchester. These include Liverpool John Lennon Airport and Leeds Bradford Airport.

    Fore more information and booking, please contact admissions@newcollegemanchester.com. For booking fees, please refer to our Fees page.

    By Taxi

    If you have not booked your taxi through New College Group then you should only use the Airport Approved Black Taxi service signposted at the airport. Black cabs can be expensive. We recommend that you book your travel through New College Group to be sure of a safe transfer.

    Cost: approx £20

    By Train

    There is a train station at the airport. After leaving the Arrivals Hall follow the signs for the train station, buy your ticket from the machine or the ticket office and board the train for Manchester Piccadilly. All trains stop at Manchester Piccadilly and run approximately every 20 minutes. The journey takes about 20 minutes. This option is often expensive unless you book in advance. The optimum booking time is 6 weeks in advance for the best fares. Click here for train timetables from National Rail Enquiries. Ensure you enter Piccadilly Train Station as the destination.

    Cost: approx £3
