A lot of students is much more natural English. Many tends to be used in the negative, e.g. There aren't many students.

Both should be accepted. As juryrigging pointed out, "many" is not that unusual in positive sentences. "Much" is very unusual in most positive sentences (eg. "He has much money"), but "many" is just a bit more formal.
