    University of Toronto scarborough is a former poly.... Please choose UCL.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Univer...to_Scarborough

    UofT does have a good reputation for Computer Science,but you aren't going to have access to it unless you go to the main campus.

    UTSC is also a massive commuter school, meaning its students mainly reside in the area and don't live near the campus. Its basically a massive high school and the way the campus looks reminds me more of a jail than a university.

    I think i've just saved you from 4 years of sadness if you chose UTSC. Your welcome.

    Maybe Manchester or Birmingham are cheaper but better options. I wouldn't pick UTSC.

    a good friend of mine got into university of Birmingham for Computer Science this year, he choose this over other well established schools like KCL and UCL, maybe look at the content of the courses and see which you like better?

    If you have gotten IIT, BITS , VIT , DTU , NSIT you are better of doing ug from there as they are way cheaper and you can apply for master in the UK

    If you can afford it though, doing undergrad abroad makes you more versatile on the job market. You gain a set of social and personal skills that you just wouldn't be staying in your home country.

    After completing my BSc of computer science for UCL can I apply to IVY universities (MIT, Harvard , Stanford) of USA?
    Because I heard that to apply to IVY universities you need a 4 years degree but UCL gives 3 years degree

    I'm sure you can, i don't think they need a 4 year degree. Since there are many unis around the world that award 3 year degrees.

    Unlike some countries like Australia (who offer 3 year Bachelors), most of UK's courses (and almost certainly ones at UCL) are BSc with honours.

    Also, if you're an international student like me, I believe UCL's cheaper especially because you'll only be paying for three years.
