    Hey guys

    I have received all my offers And I'm really stuck between the following universities:

    King's College London (BSc+Industry year)
    University Of Birmingham (BSc+Industry year)
    University of Nottingham (BSc)

    Which university do you guys think is the best out of the three for Computer Science ? Which University have the most reputable course

    I'm looking for a more theoretical course, I think KCL may have a more theoretical course?

    I'm leaning towards KCL at the moment because I like the fact that London has a growing start-up/ Tech community a downside here is that I would most likely have to live at home

    Is the course also more exam based at KCL too ?

    I know league tables aren't everything, but KCL is considerably lower ranked for Computer Science than the other two... so I'm really unsure when taking that into consideration too & why that may be.

    Thanks in advance to any responses !

    Don't know much about computer science, but what I do know i do know is that a year in industry is INVALUABLE! I highly recommend it! That should narrow it down to two for you

    Cheers for the response !

    Ah yes I've heard ! I didn't really consider Nottingham before - but included it here anyway just to see what others would think ! Because it seems to have a very good reputation among employers.

    hmm its between KCL & Birmingham really KCL don't help much to find that industry year placement, but hopefully that won't be such a problem with studying in London & KCL's reputation with employers.

    I think KCL it is really going to wait a few more days though...

    Thanks for your response again !

    In my case, I chose King's (Bsc computer science) as a firm choice and Birmingham (same as KCL) as a insurance choice. We might have a chance to meet.
