    I have been thinking about this for over a month now.. I know this has been posted many times, but imo most of the threads are too old to be reliable on..

    I got 4 options for my firm choice, and here's the list (most preferred first):

    1. Soton (AAA)
    2. UCL (AAA)
    3. Manchester (AAA)
    4. Newcastle (AAB)

    UCL's costs are not too relevant for me as I live in London myself (In fact, it would the cheapest option).

    I have been to open days at UCL and Soton, and tbh Soton was far more superior than UCL in terms of facilities, course contents, teaching methods.. I also understand that its engineering dept. is considered stronger here, in the UK. However, I'm not planning to stay in the UK forever and would like to move to the US or Canada after my MEng or CEng.

    What's the worldwide reputation in the ECS? UCL is a highly respected uni no matter where you live, but what about Soton? Would the international engineering companies be as aware of its dept. as the UCL's one? I'd love spending 4 years at Soton but there is something telling me that I might regret choosing a less reputable/prestigious uni later on..

    I'd appreciate any suggestions. Also, if you think I should pay more attention to my other options, please, let me know why.
