Both are okay but Manchester has much more benefits like learning a diff language, study abroad and have also applied for a scholarship

Go for Manchester then :smile:
Manchester is a Bsc/Msc course and would be more technical and UAL being a BA/MA would be more creative.
Both would open different kinds of opportunities. Manchester would give you a better university experience with diverse course students together, electives and more opportunities for sports and all.
UAL is of course higher ranked in arts, and better connected for proper fashion exposure. It will allow to collaborate with London fashion week, and other arts and fashion focused opportunities.

When you say you like fashion marketing - Do you like sales, buying, merchandising, business management or branding, communications, campaigns, advertising etc.?
It would all come down to what you want your future as. look up student work and alumni from both the courses on Linkedin and where they are at at the moment.

Wow, I never thought of it like this. Thank you, I am transitioning from STEM so I am more used to quantitative stuff so Bsc would probably be easier for me to understand but thank you for the help!
