    Recent economics graduate from top 3 UK university looking to switch gears and pursue a tech career.

    I've been looking at the following courses:

    QMUL - Msc Big Data Science
    City - Msc Data Science
    Imperial - Msc Computing Science (conversion)
    QMUL - Msc Computer Science (conversion)
    KCL - Msc Data Science

    Any advice or suggestions welcome!

    What is your goal?

    A generalist computing science conversion degree, will not be as specific as the Data Science degrees.

    The Data Science degrees will allow you to become a data scientist, whilst the conversion computing degree will allow you to go into the usual CS professions (software engineer, IT consultant etc...)....
