Imperial for sure. Manchester is great but Imperial is levels above for any STEM subject.

They have the same grade requirements, reputation is a matter of opinion.

Now's not the time to be picking between them anyway, you can just apply to both.

If you've got the grades for Manchester you're also probably considering Ox/Cam. A common dilemma I see on here is that if you apply there, plus Imperial, plus Manchester, that's three A*A*A choices. However Manchester is by a long way the least competitive of those three (stats here). So it's not as risky as it might seem.

Imperial is better, it is held in much higher regard and specialises in subjects like Physics, unlike Manchester.

What do you mean by that? They both offer the course.

Imperial offers STEM subjects only, whereas Manchester offers a wider range of courses which shows it is less specialised than Imperial in STEM.

I don't think that has much of an impact inherently on the undergraduate course - although it does certainly have an impact on the whole environment.

If OP wanted to work in STEM, Imperial would look more competitive on his CV because it has a higher reputation and specialises in STEM subjects such as Physics.

No you don't. The order you put your choices in on UCAS is completely irrelevant. It's only once you've heard back from all your unis that you then pick a firm choice and an insurance choice.

Manchester - Imperial has a terrible rep for student satisfaction.

Manchester was born out of a merger between UMIST and Victoria University of Manchester. UMIST, from which the current University of Manchester's STEM departments grew out of, was a specialist STEM university and so they have retained that specialism, just also added in the additional specialisms in non-STEM subjects from VUM.

That's interesting, I didn't know about that before. So Imperial and Manchester are both specialised in STEM, but Imperial has a higher repuation and is therefore a better decision.
