    OK I'm kind of split between this and Computing Science. Is this a good, recognised degree? I've been reading the University of Manchester's website and it says that employment opportunities include:

    "Typical job titles include User Interface Designer, Requirements Analyst, Usability Specialist, User Support Specialist, and Information Architect. This degree also prepares graduates for the more general roles of IT Consultant and Analyst Programmer. "

    What exactly do they DO in these jobs?

    I did a similier degree at Salford and enjoyed most of it. Interface design is a very interesting topic and is quite complex as you have to take so much into consideration.

    This is one of my strengths and is an area I want to go into eventualy. I.e designing GUIs. However for now I want a web programming job.

    I am glad I didn't do Computer Science as I don't think I would have enjoyed it.
