    I have offers from both and am unsure which to pick. (BA geography at both)
    Manchester:
    AAB
    Only about an hour away from home
    Really liked the course
    Know the city well
    High ranking for graduate employment
    Really good study abroad options
    Awful expensive accommodation
    Did not feel as comfortable here

    Newcastle:
    AAB
    3.5hrs away from home
    Also really liked the course
    Felt comfortable and at home there
    Nice cheaper accom
    Don't know the city but seems friendly and lively
    High student satisfaction
    Has the option for study abroad but at unis that don't have the international reputation
    Less prestigious
    Less employment prospects

    I initially was set on firming Newcastle but I am starting to reconsider due to Manchester's reputation

    Essentially, you're leaning more towards Newcastle for various social and personal reasons but you're not confident of it's prospects, in comparison to Manchester. Spend some more time in Manchester (before you make your decision, if possible) and you'll probably be more comfortable with it. If not, then just go to Newcastle.
