    I've heard mixed opinions about the CS course at Glasgow and Strathclyde. Some people say Strathclyde is more practical and therefore more useful and others say Glasgow is better for employability? I want to get a better idea of what each course entails and the differences, particularly from students taking either course now. Thanks in advance for any input!

    You could always see which University course is more applied than the other one, by having a look at their modules and have an idea about employability from the league tables... In order to compare two Universities, you ideally want someone that has attended both...

    Look at the modules and choose what suits you the best.League tables are worthless

    Yeah I did look at league tables, but it's based on a range of factors like student satisfaction which is a bit subjective. I found and read through the modules Strathclyde offers, but not Glasgow. Can anyone send me a link for Glasgow's available modules?

    I meant league tables just for the Graduate Prospects part, or check Unistats as well...

    Those two links might be helpful:

    oh sorry I thought you meant for the course in general. I checked uni stats, the % of students going on to further study or working within six months was useful. Thanks for the link! I knew it was specified somewhere, but I had trouble finding it for Glasgow. Now I just need to wait for the offers to roll in.
