I've had offers for Sociology from both, don't know which to pick.
I love both cities.
Had a look at student satisfaction surveys and they don't make Manchester look very good and that was the one I was thinking of for my firm.
Any students from either got advice/opinions??

I'm making LJMU either my firm or insurance because Liverpool is a really nice city and it's one of the better options I have. I think it's pretty good for Sociology and that subject area

I did criminology at LJMU and I took some of the sociology modules in my 3rd year, I'm now on a Masters in criminology also at LJMU and we have a lot of tutors from sociology on that as well so I feel like I have some knowledge of the course. I really liked the sociology modules I went on, the teaching on them was really great, equally the staff were all very supportive, I got good grades and more importantly felt like I learned a lot. There's also the opportunity to go on an international fieldwork trip in sociology, think last year it was to Nepal and this year Amsterdam, I went on the criminology departments version of it and it was amazing. It's a nice uni in general too and as another poster has already pointed out the city of Liverpool itself is an amazing place to be. I have loved living here!

Congratulations on both your offers
From my personal experience as a student at MMU (4 years ago now, so things may have changed), there wasn't a lot of support on offer if you were unhappy. However, since day one at LJMU I have had academic, financial and personal support which has been easily accessible.
Manchester and Liverpool offer the same thing nightlife and shopping wise, although Manchester is much larger, everything to do in Liverpool is a walkable distance from wherever you live which is a definite positive as it saves money on taxi and bus fares AND keeps you fit!
If you're unsure, I recommend attending one of our summer schools to see what the sociology course is really like, you can find more information here
Feel free to reply with anymore questions you might have!
