I have offers from both Liverpool and Manchester for law. I live in Manchester and I love the city and I know it’s the better uni so to speak but if I stayed in Manchester, I wouldn’t be able to move out (strict parents). I really want to have a good time at uni and make friends so I don’t know what to do.... my plan is to do my placement year in Manchester, and do a masters at Manchester.

Will I be hurting my future by going to the university of Liverpool instead? I don’t want to risk my future for a few years of fun, but then again I don’t want to be miserable throughout my entire university experience

As you know, Manchester is a very very good university, but also is Liverpool! Both are Russel groups and Liverpool uni is very nice and I the teaching is still great. The student life in Liverpool is probably up there with one of the best, with nights out and events. It’s a great city to live in and it’s hard not to enjoy living there. What I would reccomend however is having a sit down with your parents and letting them know you need to live your own life and try live in Manchester while studying your degree rather than living at home. If you really aren’t allowed to move out in Manchester then I would say go to Liverpool, but if you can go to Manchester

How come your parents will allow you to move out to go to uni in Liverpool but will not allow you to move out to go to uni in Manchester? If it's a financial consideration it makes sense but otherwise, it doesn't

Because in manchester I have "no reason to move out" as the whole wanting to live the university experience and go out isnt even a reason i can use with them. Whereas in liverpool i have to move out to be there. I havent told them about my manchester offer yet, and they wont make me go to manchester met when liverpool is drastically better. Hope that makes sense, i have ethnic parents its hard to explain

Oh I had this issue with my parents, but i ended up not telling them anything about UCAS. Tbh Liverpool is not as good as Manchester, but it wont harm you if you went there. Also, if you're planning on doing a masters then you should be fine

Well in that case, what Jaiymes said, you won't be hurting your future by going to Liverpool so do what you want to do
