Sheffield Vs. Durham Vs. UCL for Computer Science

    • Thread Starter

    So I've picked my first 4 options: Oxford, Imperial, Bristol, Warwick all for Computer Science
    My question is which university should I apply to for my last option?
    The options are in the title... any other options can also be considered but essentially I'm stuck between distance (Durham is far - my parents would rather i didnt apply here), finance (UCL is expensive), Sheffield (not as good for CompSci)....
    Please advise

    Id do a 3 way full pros and cons, but as its your fifth then you are unlikely to need it. The grade requirements for UCL and Durham are oing to be on a par with your other 4. I would be using 5th for in case my grades were lower as a bit of a safety net. I'd imagine id use Sheffield. YCL has London as a factor.
