    No it's not harder. There is a bit of first year content you might find hard, but it's all manageable. Make sure you revise properly and you should do well.


    No it won't say that you did a foundation course/foundation year on either. It will just have the BSc Computer Science written when you get your degree. No I'm sure you get funding for the foundation course too, phone up the course reps and student finance just to be sure. My foundation year at Kent was an integrated one and I still moved so it doesn't matter, if you want to move Unis you can do, no one's stopping you.


    I would go for Essex just looking at League Tables for Computer Science and overall, but you look at what course content suits you better and decide appropriately.
    So even if I go brunel the seperate foundation I could still move to a better uni after the first year? I am just really torn between brunel or essex's and I have less than a day to reply to brunel

    Yes you can, like I said no one is stopping you. Email the universities with your foundation course content and they'll let you know whether they would offer you a place or not.
    Which uni's course content do you like better? Go for that one, because that is what you will be studying that year.

    Feel free to PM me if you need more help

    EDIT: Would still go for Essex if I was you

    Do Brunel Foundation and apply to as many better unis as you can for entry into Stage one of their BSc programme. Pretty much all unis accept the foundation year.
