BSc Accounting and Finance at Exeter or BAEcon at Manchester?

I don’t really mind going to either uni but in terms of value, which course would be better? The BAEcon at Manchester would be with an accounting and finance pathway. I narrowed down my choices to these two so just hoping for some opinions on the courses and employability ect.
In terms of employability/prospects they are about as even as you can get. Manchester possibly has better international reputation if that matters to you. Both are towards the lower end of semi-targets (so still very good).

I think it should really come down to personal preference, since Exeter and Manchester are going to give you completely different experiences in terms of student life.

Employability would be dead even.

The cities are very different - have you considered this?

The course at Manchester is pretty unusual in that you have a massive range of social science/ economics courses available to you should you find that you don't enjoy studying accountancy. That can be a significant benefit and takes away a lot of risk so long as the broader subjects are something that interests you.
