    I've received offers from those three different schools, and my major is environmental engineering.
    As an international student from Asia, which school should I choose? and which city is better to stay? thank you so much!

    Presumably this is for a postgrad MSc?

    All 3 are cities, although Bristol is the smallest of the 3. You will get a good city experience at them all.

    As to the courses, pick the one that has the content you are most interested in.

    So you are only there for a year. Picking the course that suits you is therefore important.

    Yes.

    The only difference may be slight reputational differences as viewed in your home country. But you would know more about that than us...

    For engineering employers in the UK it makes no difference.

    So from what I can tell, only Birmingham and Bristol offer it as an MSc, both of which are focused on water management but Birmingham's course is a bit broader.

    Manchester only offers environmental engineering as an MPhil which is a research degree, essentially a PhD precursor, but you have a much wider selection of topics.
