    Academics will depend on the subject.

    Social life will go to Sheffield just out of it being much bigger.

    Transport links go to Sheffield. Architecture goes to York. Not sure about cost.

    Which is the best? ( academics/fun/everything)

    Depends what course.

    Fun is partly down to you.

    As a straight forward city o be a student in I would choose Sheffield because its cheaper, bigger, one of the best unions in the country. York is a bit small imo.

    Funny that I should come across such a thread as I had actually withdrew my firm acceptance from York and put it on Sheffield instead! Suffice to say I do not regret it in the slightest! York is fantastic don't get me wrong, however I found it to be a little too small and the uni was slightly out of the way which put me off. Sheffield was just marvellous on all fronts, great nightlife, uni is second to none, lecturers looked very motivated and enthusiastic and best of all I didn't feel like I would ever be alone. At the end of the day their both excellent uni's, personally however I would choose Sheffield over York, broadly speaking that is! Wish you all the best OP!
