I can't choose between the University of Manchester and the University of Edinburgh, which is better?

I have offers from the University of Edinburgh and the University of Manchester, but I'm struggling to decide between the two, can you help?
Both the University of Manchester and the University of Edinburgh are very reputable universities.

As both are high quality institutions I would advise taking into account other factors such as course content, location and cost. For example Manchester is in England and is a very large city whereas Edinburgh is in Scotland and a slightly smaller, more quaint city.

The course at Manchester is also considerably cheaper by my calculation:

A huge congrats on getting offers from both, it sounds as though you are in a good position.
