    Hi,

    I am currently unsure whether to go to Edinburgh or Exeter for Computer Science. I received an offer of AAA from Edinburgh and AAB from Exeter. I recently went to an Exeter taster course and thoroughly enjoyed it and the campus immensely itself (going Edinburgh taster course in a couple of days). However, I am slightly concerned since Exeter has seemingly vanished from computer science league tables. Edinburgh, on the other hand, ranks consistently high in CS tables and internationally, but for some reason ranks lower than Exeter domestically.

    My question is which university should I firm, and which to put as an insurance option. I'm mostly looking for opinions and facts of which is better and why.

    Thanks

    I went to the Exeter taster day and asked about the league tables and the admission tutor said that the only reason they didn't get included was due to the small cohort of students for that year. Hopefully that helps.

    Edinburgh without a doubt. It's a targeted university for CS employers and Edinburgh is the best department, certainly in the uk, for Artificial Intelligence. I've firmed Edinburgh for this Year. Any more questions just quote us
