    Hi there,
    Im about to complete my BSC Computing degree by the end of this month ... i wud prefer to get admission in a univerisity in Uk preferably in london for MSC computing .. i understand that the fee structure for international students is different and more costly... im looking for a good reputed university (though it may not be top ranked) with a fee structure bw 5000-6500 pounds if the course duration is for one year.. and 3500-4500 pounds if its a 2 year program...
    Also is it possible in to have work to afford ur studies i already have 2 year of relavent experience in my field ...

    Can any one tell me which universities i shud apply to and if i do get admission in one what are my chances of surviving my studies over there

    i would be glad if some one can help me out !!

    Universities you may like to consider which are know to have great departments (in no particular order)....

    IC
    Edinburgh
    York
    Manchester
    Surrey
    Southampton

    To be honest I don't know a great deal about the fee sturucture for international students so I can't really comment there. Maybe someone else has some experience of this... :confused:

    I think that IC is quite expensive I seem to remember someone mentioning around £10,000 for their comp for industry course)

    Edinburgh and York are quite expensive also but I hear they both do a great deal in the way of bursaries and sponsorship for their students. You should parhaps look into this!!!

    I wad told that Manchester is one of the more reasonably priced courses and they also do have university funded places (again I'm not sure for international student though).

    Of those I know that Middlesex is supposed to have very good computing facilities (though I've not visited to be honest). I believe that it is a newer university which some people and arguably employers feel are generally "lesser" than some of the long establised universities. I would however recommend looking into courses at Teeside and Sussex which IMHO have strong courses also. It might be helpful if you know what area of computer science you wanted to enhance you knowledge of?!? :confused:
