I have some sort of idea. I like programming but dont just want to do it for a full time job. I like the idea of data warehousing and jobs such as data analyst and system analyst.

I can't tell you what you'll enjoy more, that's for you to see the modules and see what you feel looks more interesting.

When I applied for manchester (which is a fairly good uni for computer science I've heard), they declined my offer but gave me a definite placement on 'computing for business applications' course, should I choose to do it...

this implies to me that it is just a worse version of computer science, a course for the rejects

I decided to just go with lancaster university computer science course instead

I am a first year from Surrey. I chose my uni because of the outstanding grad prospects.

I can tell you that both degrees will certainly have almost IDENTICAL prospects. If you are litterally in love with Math, then choose CS. But if not then choose CSB

personally i was offered CS at Sussex and KCL. But surrey said their course was more mathematical and such I was offered CIT (same as CSB). I chose surrey because of the department. It is one of the very best.
