if reputation is something that interests you, then i will say that Criminology as a degree itself has a poor reputation, and any difference in reputation between Manchester and Durham is completely insignificant. go to the uni which offers the modules that interest you and the environment that suits you - one is in a big, fun, multicultural city, whereas the other is a pretty, cosy, monocultural posh environment

You need to go to Open Days, find out as much about what makes each course different - and the difference in the two Unis.
Durham is college based in a small city - and Manchester is a big city Uni with thousands of students.

Which course interests you more?
Which Uni feels 'right'?

This is not something total strangers on a website chatboard can decide for you.

Look at jobs you could apply for - i.e. imagine you were qualified- now and job hunting. You might find the course content matters and not the name. Pick where you feel comfortable living and look at transport. Think of your CV and what you can join in with etc etc. You have 2 totally different places. Do you like cities urban style- if not Manchester is not for you.
