Which University should I go for?

I received offer letter from my top choices: University of Liverpool (MSc in Big data and high performance computing) and University of Bath (MSc in Statistical Data Science). I will be adding my insights and pov, please correct me if I am wrong!

Pros of UoB: the university is huge and it has great network with employers, broad use of my MSc because modules are versatile, Bristol is 20 mins away to find better scope of work.
Cons: it is located in small town near Bristol, high cost of living and part time jobs are paid v low, non Russell and no accreditation for programs, hard to find good accommodation.

Pros of UoL: Medium Uni, city life, Russell group , programs are accredited by BCS, better part time work scope, amazing accommodation.
Cons: Lowly ranked, course modules are very specific, Manchester is an hour away, low network with comparison to Bath.

I would really appreciate all your insights and inputs, thank you!

Using the pros and cons list you have mentioned, if I were you , I would go with Bath
Bath isn't exactly a small town.

Personally I would put job prospects at the top of the list and Bath wins with the number of Technology jobs there are in Bristol and the M4 corridor.
Bath is not a small town, it’s a city

I agree, I have seen the majority of Tech jobs being in London and then Bristol, thank you for your response!
