    Perhaps take some time to actually read the course descriptions for each and you'll get a better idea. If you can't be bothered to read the course description what makes you think you'll have the passion to do one of the courses? :s

    If you cant understand the differences in course description (thats if you bothered reading them) for each course than you should't study that subject.

    I'll echo what everyone else here has claimed. If you don't know what you're getting into you'll not finish the course and will just end up wasting thousands of pounds.

    I'd recommend having a quick look on Wikipedia for a neutral view on what these subjects entail, but you'll find that most universities have their own interpretation on what these courses are about. For example, if you're looking at the ex-polytechnics then you're looking at a ton of Java in Computer Science, whereas a number of the top universities want proficiency in Maths and probably in C.
