Imperial College London easily without a doubt.

That's what I was thinking as well.. But second to imperial? And is the difference in reputation significant?

I'm not sure about which is second after Imperial College, but I know it's one of the best places in London (after Oxford of course). Think of Oxford like Harvard and Imperial College like MIT, they're both very prestigious but one's a bit more specialised, which may be what you want, in which case, Imperial College is the best by far :smile:

it has the best reputation for one of the three circumstances asked about, employability, though a CS degree from any of the others will leave you very employable.

I think there is certainly room for doubt about whether it is easily the best or even narrowly the best for student life and student satisfaction.

So out of the five previously stated unis, which one would you recommend?(in order if possible)

I don't know. They're all good. Do you want to live in a major world city or a historic seaside golfing resort or on a suburban plate-glass campus in the English midlands? Do you have specific interests (for example Edinburgh is terrific for AI and Cognitive Science)? Will a small department at St Andrew's mean a narrower range of options?

You can't go wrong with these 5, re; respectability and whatever it is. So just go where you fancy, for the city and the course.

Thanks a lot!
And does it make a difference wether I do a 4 year BSc (Computer Science and Math-Edinburgh, St Andrews) or a 4 year MEng (Computing-Imperial, Warwick, Computer science w/Innovation-Bristol) ?

Hi. Would be good to know what you finally took, if you're ok for that? and how did it stack up vis-a-vis perception from the outside? Thanks
