Sheffield or Manchester?Watch
I am struggling to choose between the two unis/cities
Anyone in the same position or attending either uni?
Does Sheffield have a good nightlife? Is Manchester an overwhelming city to move to? Is one city more expensive than the other to live in?
I am hoping to study english lit
Manchester probably has the best nightlife although I've heard the clubs at Sheffield are better as they're mostly filled with students. As an undergrad there I wouldn't say Manchester is overwhelming at all, or at least not the campus itself.
Are you in halls? Do you feel generally safe in the city?
(sorry for all the questions )
What people say about nightlife here is true. It's a bustling city with plenty of nightlife and culture, not the desolate industrial wasteland many people believe it to be
And I'm not sure why people keep listing Sheffield being russel group as an advantage when manchester is too lol. I've also never felt unsafe in manchester. Lastly, you can't say which uni has nicer people. That's 100% subjective and depends on the people you're exposed to during uni. No idea what the people above me are talking about.
In terms of facilities, they'll both honestly look practically the same too. You should've just visited each unis open day. We can't decide for you but my bias prefers Manchester. Sheffield uni felt very underwhelming when i visited it.
But make that conclusion yourself
