    hi all !

    So i'm in my senior year of high school and have already applied to several universities in the UK. I've received an offer from a couple of them . And I'm currently interested in studying Compute science in Leeds .. Can I get some opinions considering the university and this major there ?

    Thank you

    I can share my opinion, as I hold an offer from Leeds to study Computer Science there next year. I was invited to an open day, before I recieved my offer. Personally, I think the University has fantastic facilities, and their School of Computing is easily the biggest I've ever seen.

    There is one thing however, I don't think that Leeds is as popular for Computer Science as other similar Universities, mainly because I only saw about 10-12 applicants at the open day, whereas in comparision to Manchester and Sheffield, there were many more applicants at the open day when I went.

    I don't think Leeds has a strong enough reputation for the course, in comparision to Manchester and Sheffield, however it does seem like a fantastic Uni. Good luck with whichever Uni you choose, but make sure it's a good one!

    I study at Leeds and it is pretty cool I think the Computer Science department is in the same building as mine and always seems to have large bearded men walking around it so that must be a good sign

    beecher > hehehe I hope so .. mm can I ask you something ?? .. you see I've read through lots of comments in the net that the computer science major is " too hard " and a lot drop out ! is it really that hard ?? and I'm going to start with foundation year , soo isn't that supposed to give me the small steps before the big ones ?? as in make things a bit easier ? it's just that I've always loved solving math quizzes and always got around in the computer trying to discover new things , so I thought its the right major for me .. what do you think ? do you anything about the major ?
