    Hi All,

    I'm currently applying for a conversion MSc in computer science - my ultimate goal is to be a software developer for mobile operating systems. As this is a conversion masters, I have no prior experience in programming.

    Anyways, I was going to apply to Bristol but have just seen that the main language used in the course is C.

    Should I go for a course that uses C as the main language? I was under the impression Java would be more useful.

    EDIT: These are the modules I will be studying (they are all compulsory):

    Overview of Computer Architecture
    Programming in C
    Software Engineering and Group Project
    Databases
    Object-Oriented Programming with Java
    Research Skills
    Web Technologies

    EDIT 2:

    The course at Swansea, however, is accredited by the BCS (if that matters), teaches in Java and has a lot of optional modules in mobile development.
