I'm in a bit of dilemma here and I would really appreaciate some help.
I finished my first year as a Computer Science student at Coventry University with an average of 71% and I have the possibility to transfer to either Leeds University or Uni of Leicester. Those are the following programs:
BSc Applied Computer Science - University of Leeds
BSc Computer Science - University of Leicester
I know that both are better universities than Coventry but the thing is that the CS program at Leeds has "Applied" in front of it
I am currently an offer holder for the program and I'm a bit worried that if I graduate with an ACS degree I will be at a disadvantage when applying for software dev-related jobs because I've heard that the Applied route is just a fancy name for the former Information Technology degree and is tailored towards maintaining computer systems, not designing them....
My question is, should I transfer to a Russel Group uni for an "Applied" Computer Science degree or should I stay at Coventry University and pursue a regular BSc Computer Science degree?
Thank you in advance.
