Kings, Royal Holloway or Surrey, for Computer Science? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Right, I really need some help as I cant decide which uni to go to for Computer Science. I applied for Brunnel, Reading, Kings College, Surrey and Royal Holloway and have now received offers from all.

    At the moment I'm thinking to go for Surrey, but I know that Kings College and Royal Holloway are also great unis.

    I've looked at several league tables to see which is the best, but each of the tables vary.

    Where do you think would be best? How do you decide which uni to go for?

    Thanks in advance!

    I don't know about Computer Science, but overall I would suggest that King's is the most prestigious of the five.

    Look at the courses in detail - does one of them stand out in terms of having more interesting modules? Does one uni have better facilities? Have you visited any of them - if so, did you get any positive/negative feelings? And where would you rather live? Which has the best campus and/or the best city/town/area to live in for years two and three?

    Also, what offers have you received - there could be some tactical decision-making to be done regarding your firm and insurance.
