Read The Skinny Student Handbook Northwest 

The Skinny Student Handbook Northwest launched in 2014 to deliver a comprehensive guide to what the cities of Liverpool and Manchester have to offer.  An annual publication that hits the streets every September in time to reach new and returning students, the Student Handbook aims to ensure that our readers are ahead of the crowds on the best bars and clubs, and in the know about the most interesting music, films and art that each city has to offer.

Produced each year by a team of recent graduates alongside the regular team from The Skinny’s monthly magazine, our Student Handbook provides the most up to date information and experiences from students in Liverpool and Manchester. With handy maps, venue profiles and year round guides to each city this is content created by locals, for locals. 20,000 copies are distributed via universities, colleges and hand picked student friendly venues that our monthly magazine works with regularly.

You can visit our Students section to get an A-Z on the Northwest music scene, an intro to your city or visit our what’s on events guide if you want to know what to go and see today.

To keep on top of recommendations, we whittle down every week’s events in a useful Top Ten Events guide via our weekly eNewsletter Zap which you can sign up for here, giving you the best options for your week ahead every Thursday.

You can also be the first to know about the best Scotland has to offer culturally by subscribing to The Skinny monthly magazine here, receiving a copy straight to your door each month.
