I have failed my firm and insurance choice so now I'm in clearing, my grade was aabc a for maths a for Chinese b for further maths and c for econ, I have already received offer from clearing in QM to study Mathematics with finance and accounting,and qualified to apply Manchester Management studies with finance and accounting.But I'm having difficulties deciding whether to apply to QM or Manchester, my parents said Manchester has better ranking in both subject and overall, which would contribute to my future career finding, but I like the city London more, and I have a lot of friends in London as well, so I don't know.

Rankings mean little. Focus on the course and they are very different. Which one is more in line with what you want to do?

I've only been studying Maths before and really don't know much about management at all, I totally understand that they wanted me to have a better profile for my career, but in various aspects, London is the place that is more attractive to me.

Have you looked at the courses themselves? Which one interests you more? Does finance interest you at all?

Ok so we're back to which of the two interests you more? Read through the course descriptions to work that out and then choose. Good luck!

Both would be excellent uni's with super interesting courses, but like the others have said, which one would interest you more? And you're totally right to consider what life will also look like, which to me sounds more like you'd prefer QM. What else would sway your decision? Research things like accommodation, cost of living etc as well, if the courses are on par with each other at this stage in terms of how interested you are in them.

Another thing to consider is the living cost - London is very expensive and can cause problems for some students with paying the living costs of the London lifestyle.

Both schools are good but Manchester is generally higher ranked, especially in the finance/economics related courses ~30 in A&F/Economics/etc

Probably the only down-side of London in terms of living is the cost of rent, food and pleasure in general. That's something which can be the deciding factor for many candidates.
