    I know that this is probably not the right section but one of the most active and I want an answer (desperate)

    I am not sure which university to go! Im planing to study computer/computing science. I know aston is ranked higher and has better reputation then city. But city has a higher ranking in computer science!

    Ranking don't mean everything but I don't want people to think I go to a bad university like my family is making city out to be!

    To me all that matters is the students at university and the teaching there and also good employment.

    I'm not so bothered about partying and stuff

    Please help!

    Personally I think you should consider the social aspect of each uni just because it is such a huge part of uni life.
    Also I'd say that specific subject ranking is more important than the overall ranking, but I really recommend you visit them both on an open day or just go and take a look on any ordinary day so you can get a feel of the place.
    university.which.co.uk is a really good site you can use to compare the stats like employment, average earnings graduates make and student satisfaction etc between different unis for the same course.

    Thankyou for the site! And yes I know I was shocked how aston keeps dropping in subject rankings however when I was checking unistats the students were receiving better grades then students in city and queen Mary!

    Have you been to aston before?

    I been to city and I didn't really like the building but the students all seemed so nice!

    Thanks for replying!!
