    Hello everyone!

    I applied to study Computer Science at 5 universities in the UK this year ( I am an EU applicant). I received offers from Glasgow, Strathclyde, Southampton and Newcastle and I have a hard time deciding which two universities to choose. I am considering Glasgow and Southampton for my first choice.

    The University of Glasgow is in the top 1% of the world's universities. It is located in the centre of Glasgow which is great. I find the programme structure interesting and I like that I can choose to study other subjects in years 1 and 2.

    The University of Southampton is also a good place to study. It is ranked 7th in Computer Science and Information Systems (Guardian University Guide 2016). The living costs in Southampton will be more affordable but the city is smaller and less attractive.

    Please give me some advice that will help me with my decision. I would be happy if I could talk to someone who studies at these university and can give me first-hand information.

    Hi Leyla,

    I'm very happy to hear that you are considering studying at the University of Glasgow. We run a service called Ask a Student here whereby you can get in touch with our current students to ask them questions.

    Here is the link: http://www.gla.ac.uk/studentlife/askastudent/

    If you fill out the form online you will be matched with a student who is studying Computing Science.

    Hope this helps
