    If you didn't like Nottingham then you shouldn't put that down as your insurance.

    Sussex is meant to be very good for CompSci but the best thing is to visit the other two (+Royal Holloway if you want).

    Why didn't you like Nottingham?
    The campus' are all split up. The campus where the comp sci building is is real small and ****ty. No shops anywhere near that campus just Main Roads. Also the city is quite small and ****ty. Didn't really have a good experience got lost couldn't get a bus because I didn't have any change and no shops around. Just a real bad day. my advice is visit and make your own mind up.

    I really want to go to Birmingham and I've pretty much got the grades now so I'm not worrying too much what I put as insurance. I may go and visit Sussex but Essex is a little too far away to travel just to check it out.

    I firmed Birmingham and put Sussex as insurance. Royal Holloway took too long giving me a response so I decided to withdraw my application.
