    Sure, Sheffield has a strong department. Not as good as the other Unis (e.g., Imperial, UCL, Southampton, etc), but it's not a bad department.

    I'm not sure what you're asking - but I doubt you'll find anyone who says that Sheffield has the best CS department in the UK.

    I said it is a strong department, but perhaps not as strong in terms of reputation as other Unis. I also found some of the course content a bit dry (just lecturers in front of PowerPoints) and I'm not convinced Genesys (the work experience module) is a good simulation of real-world SWEng practices

    Southampton I think edges it over Edinburgh for SWEng, but Edinburgh has a very strong theoretical reputation. But there's not much in it.

    Sheffield has a VERY good reputation for Software Engineering it's the only University in the UK where you work for a Real Software Company as part of your course. If you are looking for a job in Software Engineering then Sheffield wouldn't be a bad choice. Don't just look at league tables the subjects they cover are usually to wide and the methodologies are usually pretty rubbish.

    You are better to focus on what each department can offer you in terms of your masters degree and what it is you are wanting to do after your degree.
