I have applied to study maths and I am holding 4 offers however I am debating between York and Birmingham for my firm choice. I like both courses equally so I am unsure where to firm.

Which has the best and most affordable accommodation?
How safe are both cities to live?
Would I have to move out of student accommodation in the second year?
Best employment opportunities?

I can't tell you about first year accommodation but the various options will be available on the Uni websites.

In the second year, it is usual for students at both Unis to have to move out of student accomodation into private accomodation unless you have extenuating circumstances such as a disability.

York is a much smaller city than Birmingham (much prettier, by the way) and will be the safer of the two.

Employment opportunites? I would have thought they are similar but you could email the Unis for advice about recent graduate destinations and links with employers
