So I was recently offered places on both Manchester and Edinburgh which to begin with were two of my top choices. I've applied for the respective courses for biological sciences, and I'm interested in specializing in genetics or evolutionary biology. I would like to ask what's your take on both the universities, cities and the differences between the two.
From what I've seen so far I find Manchester to be a large city whereas Edinburgh is more historic and stuff. Also Manchester offers an integrated masters studies but Edinburgh's offers more flexibility in the course.
I'm stuck, so any input is welcome.

I don't know Edinburgh at all, but I do know Manchester.
One thing to note with Manchester is that everyone doing a life sciences degree starts off doing a common year one - so everyone does the same modules. After that you can choose to specialise - so you could do modules in genetics, for instance, and actually graduate with a genetics degree.
It's pretty flexible and it's often possible to switch specialisations up until the start of third year
