    Hi,
    I am currently studying computer science at Uni of South Wales, I ve done UCAS to change uni. I 'd like to get opinions about the uni because can't make my choice...
    If I could also have any additional informations it would be fab !!
    The Uni are :
    -brighton
    -southampton
    -sussex uni
    -east london
    -aston uni
    For the moment Brighton Uni takes me, also southampton and I am still waiting the others !

    Thanks for your help

    Southampton by far. None of the other universities (certainly not Brighton or UEL) can compare to their reputation in engineering and STEM subjects in general.

    Do you mean Southampton or Southampton Solent? The former is good, the latter not so good.

    Southampton, or Southampton Solent? Southampton much better than any of the others you've listed, Solent is about the same.

    A rather important piece of information!!! In that case, not Solent or UEL.

    Overall they have the weakest reputations. If you want to know what you would study at any of them you have to read the course description.

    None of them are a huge step-up from Uni of South Wales. And some are ranked lower. Why move?

    Out of all of them I would say Sussex would be the most reputable, followed by Aston. I would pick one of those 2.

    Has Aston relocated? Was in deepest Midlands last time I checked. An UEL is in, er, London.

    Check out Surrey. It's good. Or Southampton.

    If your looking for a seaside university try Swansea right next to the beach. Another one is Aberystwyth. Both are far nearer than Brighton

    Come to think of it, one of the most successful Comp Sci grads I've worked with went to Sussex.
