    Hi guys... I have offers from all three universities but I am unsure which one I should choose. I'd like to hear opinions about these universities overall and about the computer science course. I'm not from UK so I don't really know how well-regarded these universities are in UK and around the world, and I know that league tables don't tell the whole truth. I would be very grateful for any help.

    They're all good, but I would say Manchester and King's are better than Birmingham (and King's is possibly slightly better than Manchester). One big factor is location - King's is London, the other two are not. That means it will be a lot more expensive to live there. What are the fees like for all of them? If I were an international student, I'd be inclined to go for whichever one was cheapest.

    Thank you for your reply! I'm from Europe so my fees are the same as they are for UK students. But I agree with you that the location is something to consider. I think King's biggest advantage and at the same time disadvantage is the location. I'd love to live in London as there are so many opportunities there but at the same time it is really expensive and I'm pondering is the location really worth all the extra money...

Do you agree with the PM's proposal to cut tuition fees for some courses?
