    Hi guys... I have offers from all three universities but I am unsure which one I should choose. I'd like to hear opinions about these universities overall and about the computer science course. I'm not from UK so I don't really know how well-regarded these universities are in UK and around the world, and I know that league tables don't tell the whole truth. I would be very grateful for any help.

    CS graduate from Bham here. I'd say at Birmingham there is more emphasis on helping you learn and the university is also one of the better ones in terms of employment. It's also consistently on top ranking for CS program in the UK. So in my opinion, if you're new to the CS field and want to use the degree in UK then Bham might be a good choice.
    Manchester is better recognized internationally and has a strong CS program, so if you want to show that you have a CS degree, Manchester is better.
    No idea about King's College.
