I'm currently holding uncond. offers from uni of leeds & manchester for bsc accounting & finance and bsc accounting respectively. Quite confused as to which uni is better because leeds is ranked higher in UK while manchester is more well known in the international region.
Which is preferably better in terms of job prospects or seeking for a placement year in one of the big 4 companies? Anyone have similar encounters/advice? Thanks in advance!
Leeds or Manchester? (UG) Watch

Make your choice dependent on course structure and contents other than reputations of these two, as they are both prestigious leading unis in Russell Group. If you look at the most recent Research Excellence Framework results, they are both top 10 unis in the UK regarding research power. For undergrads Finance degrees, obviously Leeds edges Manc speaking of the overall strength of Accounting and Finance division. But Manc has a better international reputation, if u look at various world uni rankings. However, personally, I think those global uni rankings are extremely misleading. It really doesn't make much difference whether you hold a degree from Leeds or Manc, rather ,I would say it is whether you have a first that makes the difference.
Just go to their university open days, see which one fits u better. Good luck.
